    I agree that it would make an awesome movie story. But I wish they wouldn't change a thing in it. I have read the book in it's original english version, and it's the only one I really understood from the first page to the last without using my ''faithful'' dictionary to help me out with words.

    I think so, too. It is too big for a screen event but would be a great TV mini-series.
    I am still reading.
    I already have the Second Selectman type-cast. I'm sorry, but as I read, the actor Barry Corbin is the Second Selectman. He is good at blustery rhetoric and cunning looks and sarcasm. I hate to think of a person in such a one-dimensional way, but he is able to be the perfect example of the epitome "greedy, self-serving, power-hungry, politician" character.
    He may be a really nice man in RL, but he plays a crooked, scheming one so very well.
    Fred Dalton Thompson just looks and sounds like a politician, but he doesn't do the "shifty, shrewd and viciously cunning" look very well.
    I see Todd Stashwick as Dale Barbara, although he is too tall for casting as such a character. He has the Face, though.
    Matt Frewer in my mental visual is doing a much different role as Chef.

    Wonder if anyone else populates novels with their own cast of personalities and possibly friends as they read....

    I think that they should either make an anthology movie in which there are adaptations of several short stories or a whole film based on a short story which has not yet been adapted.

    Did you see Nightmares & Dreamscapes? Eight 1 hour movies based on SK short stories, they're brilliant!
    I would like to see a second season with adaptions of THE MAN IN THE BLACK SUIT, HERE THERE BE TYGERS, NIGHT SURF, MRS TODD'S SHORTCUT, THE MONKEY, THE LIBRARY POLICEMAN, THE GINGERBREAD GIRL, A VERY TIGHT PLACE and a PROPER version of THE LAWNMOWER MAN!!
