Books into Movies - October

Expect to see more great literature brought to life this fall - here's a sampling of films that will be released in October which are based on books:

"How to Lose Friends and Alienate People" starring Simon Pegg and Kirsten Dunst. Based on the memoir of the same title by Toby Young.

"Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" starring Michael Cera (of "Juno" fame) and Kat Dennings. Based on the book of the same title by Rachel Cohn.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe team up in "Body of Lies," based on the novel by David Ignatius.

Children's book City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau is now a major motion picture with some big names, such as Bill Murray, Tim Robbins, Saoirse Ronan (of "Atonement" fame) and Martin Landau.

Speaking of big names, Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson, Dakota Fanning and Alicia Keys come together for the much-anticipated "Secret Life of Bees" based on the novel by Sue Monk Kidd.
