Perdido Street Station. The imagery in that book is absolutely incredible, so rich, especially the cityscapes, and just begs for a cinematic interpretation. The action sequences would be off the chain. I can practically see the movie rolling in my head when I read it, and I've read it about three times so far.

It would be directed by Guillermo del Toro, of course. Isaac Grimnebulin would be played by Forest Whitaker and Derkhan Blueday by Miranda Richardson. As for Lin, there'd have to be an actress who was the physical equivalent of, say, Andy Serkis... someone who was a genius with moving their whole body, since they'd be acting with a giant bug strapped on top of their face for the whole movie.  The Mayor? Tim Roth.

That movie would totally fucking rock. Unfortunately, it won't get made, at least anytime soon. Not in a world where  At The Mountains of Madness gets spiked (sobs).
