STEINBECK BOOKS THAT SHOULD BE MADE INTO MOVIES AND THE DIRECTORS THAT SHOULD MAKE THEM.
It's time people do the Old Man some justice.
- •The Grapes of Wrath, directed by the Coen Brothers.It would bring tears to Tom Joad's heavy, heavy eyes. The only guys up to the task.
- •Cannery Row, directed by Wes Anderson.Bunch of quirky, flawed characters. All interacting in some exaggerated and poetic setting. It's just begging for Mr. Anderson to pick it up.
- •Travels with Charley, directed by Adam McKay.Starring Steve Carell as John himself.
- •Tortilla Flat, directed by David Lynch.Just... just think about it. How has this not happened yet?

- •Of Mice and Men, directed by Quentin Tarantino.People have tried to make this movie happen, and it always comes out way to fluffy. Give Tarantino the camera, but still let Malkovich be Lenny.
- •The Pearl, directed by Martin Scorsese.This is really just a Scorese movie. Try to prove me wrong.
- •The Red Pony, directed by Alejandro González-IñárrituEat your heart out, Alejandro. And good luck with this collection of short stories of coming-of-age tales.
