The Book I Have ALWAYS Wanted To Be Made Into A Movie

With it being World Book Day yesterday, one of Amazon's Twitter accounts asked its followers what book needs to be made into a movie.

I knew exactly what my answer was.

It's what I had wanted ever since I was a child.

But, there's a flaw to my idea. Especially now.

The book I have always wanted to see made into a movie is Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator by Roald Dahl.

It's the sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and - from my hazy memory - I believe it starts right where the first book finished.

Despite there being two feature films based on the first book with 1971's Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Tim Burton's crappy version starring Johnny Depp in 2005, sequels have never been done.

The flaw I mentioned above is that there would have to be another Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie just so they can get to do the sequel with the same actors and story continuity.
