A bunch of movies have been announced for release next year, but some aren’t to be seen until the year after! So we’ll be waiting a while. But here are some of the book to movie adaptations we are excited to hear about, no matter how far away they are:

There is no news on this yet – no cast or director announced – but it has a release date already! July 31, 2015. They had better get onto it then, that’s not even very far away!

Pan (based on Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie)

Starring Rooney Mara, Hugh Jackman and Amanda Seyfried, this sounds like it will be amazing (although Rooney Mara’s casting as Native American Tiger-Lily is questionable). It’s directed by Joe Wright (who also directed Hanna, Atonement, Pride & Prejudice (with Keira Knightley), Anna Karenina… With few exceptions, he sure does seem to direct a lot of adaptations of classic novels.
According to ScreenRant: “The story not only reveals how young Peter found his way to Neverland, but also how be initially befriended the pirate James Bartholomew Hook – in the days before the latter’s surname became quite literal, after he lost one of his hands, replaced it a hook, and become Pan’s sworn enemy.” Sounds interesting!

All we know is it stars Eva Green and will be directed by Tim Burton. We’re sold. (We also have the book as a graphic novel, if you want a peek into the potential visuals.)

And then there a whole bunch of extremely exciting ones which we have zero details on, aside from the fact that they’re a happening thing:

The Diviners (also by Libba Bray)
The Night Circus (by Erin Morgenstern)
Daughter of Smoke and Bone (by Laini Taylor)
Matched (by Ally Condie)

We are waiting anxiously to see all of these! What are you most looking forward to seeing on the big screen?
