We've pulled a list of popular films that may or may not have been given the same opportunity to spring to life from the pages of a book.

We're curious to know — can you spot which of these popular movies are based on novels?

8/11. I may be a bookworm, but I haven't read any of those.

You ought to read "Dances With Wolves". It's really good.
If it's anything like the movie, it would be good as a sleep aid. I have read One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, one of my favorite movies.

Same...Actually I've read all of Tom Harris' Hannibal Lector books except the Hannibal Rising one...Took a break. The movies except Hannibal were very faithful(mostly to Ted Tally Oscar winning adapting!)

9/11! [appro score for today...LOL!!] Missed 6 and 10! Fun Fact: Nothing Lasts Forever was originally developed for Frank Sinatra! Can you picture Old Blue Eyes saying, "Yippie Ki A"...well, you fill in the rest! Another Fun Fact: Bruce Willis made his film debut in The First Deadly Sin, which was Frank's last starring role! And yes, THAT film came from a novel!!
PS Technically 7 should be NO, because by definition a memoir is non-fiction, therefore NOT a novel!
Die Hard was technically a sequel to The Detective, which starred Frank Sinatra, which is why they were obligated to offer the role to Sinatra.
