When it comes to film adaptations of novels, comic books, historical texts, plays, and even TV movies, writers constantly run into huge obstacles. What material should they remain faithful to? Where can they take license to revamp the story? And is there any forumla or set way to please everyone who liked the original material in the first place?
These are the films that have done it best, and in many cases, have taken license in changing a significant amount of the original material to make the movie version work. Enjoy!
