Re: Make something new
David Eddings' Belgariad series? Or the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant?
Please - no. There are far, far better candidates (the Joe Abercrombie books or the Steel Remains books by Richard Morgan).
If you want Sci-fi then the Honor Harrington books (or the early ones anyway) by David Weber. Lots of explosions and action, even if the good guys always win..
I suppose the Thomas Covenant books could be compressed down to about 1/2 an hour of film but you'd be getting people slitting their wrists about 15 minutes in.
