We all long for film versions of the novels, and consequently, it has been discussed in various places around this board. One of the ideas discussed, which seems not only popular, but also the best way to bring any of the [Robicheaux] novels to life, is as a mini-series on HBO or Showtime, or some such network. The novels are far too complex, layered and rich, to be adequately contained within a 2 hour film, and I think has been demonstrated with both Heaven's Prisoners and Electric Mist. Personally, I liked both films, though they did fall well short of their respective novels. Too much to cram into a such a small time frame.
Two, or perhaps three, 2 hour installments on HBO would not only be more cost effective, but allow for much deeper development of story, characters and of course, location(s). To me, the environment in which the stories take place is as much a living, breathing entity as any of the characters.
All else being the same, I wish I was the creator/developer/owner of a world-wide popular social network worth $100 billion. I'd happily bankroll the production of every novel, so long as I got to be a character in at least one of them. ~grin
