I want someone to do an animated movie for 'Maus.'
It was a 3-graphic novel series done by a man who had interviewed his father about his time during the Holocaust. Instead of a normal book format, he did it as a comic. The Germans were cats, the Jews were mice and the Americans were dogs, etc.
It's in no way humorous. It was a very serious series. The use of animals was actually very well done.
I'm generally not too excited to see a book I really love made into a movie. I'm a fan of the Vince Flynn series (Mitch Rapp is the butt-kicking superstar spy), and I did breathe a sigh of relief when the movie for one of the books was put on hold.
Usually I am disappointed/angry with the film result. Even as a kid, I was really ticked about The Black Stallion movie because so many liberties were taken.
The only somewhat recent screenplay I can remember that was totally faithful to the book is Atonement. It was beautifully done - a credit to the original work.
