    I hope not. I really really hate when they make movies out of books. In most cases, the movie is not even close to being as good (in a lot of cases they are downright BAD) and I think would turn people off to the written story. KWIM?

    But then I'm a reader. I know a lot of people who haven't picked a book up since high school and wouldn't have any clue about the story were it not for the movie. My husband being one of those. I just don't understand that.

    It's always interesting notion, but there's also a risk - especially in book in which a large part of the story takes place int he past or in the character head - which it does in this case.

    But I don't mind the risk actually - in the worst case I'll still have the book to love.

    WJS. If anyone can make a Duma adaptation work, it's Frank Darabont.

    I agree some of his books haven't been great films, but think the mist and 1408.

    I would put Dustin Hoffman as Edgar, Diane Keaton as Pam, and Jeff Bridges as Wireman. I just think that if done with any passion, a "Duma Key" film would be a great thing to watch.

    M.C. Gainey from LOST should play Wireman. He'd be absolutely perfect for the role.

    I couldn't get his face out of my head after reading his description. I could hear his voice every time I read "muchacho"...
