Firstly, the OP asked for books that are GOING to be made into movies, not a compendium of every movie based on a book ever.
Secondly, why on earth would you copy paste the entire list into your answer? Put some thought into it. Read the question, give a constructive answer, then say somethign to the effect that a full list of all book-to-movie titles is [link here].
Pasting a thousand line long answer makes you look like an idiot and gets your question a thumbs down,
As for the original question:
Some upcoming book to movies are:
Harry Potter 6
Harry Potter 7 into 2 movies
The Hobbit into 2 movies
About 4 different Stephen King books
Lots of comic book adaptations
Im sure there are many many more, but those are the only ones I am really interested in at this point.
