The Neverending Movie (Again) Plus Special Bonus Lightning Round

I've had this one marked in Google Reader for a few weeks, but something akin to the Black Death laid me low all last week. I'm crawling back towards life now, so I've decided to post about it. Apparently, The Neverending Story is on the radar of Leonardo DiCaprio's production company, for a remake, or a reboot, or some such. I have two questions:

1) Since when does Leo have a production company?
2) Really, Leo, must you?

I have fond memories of TNS, including the book itself, which I buckled down and read in grad school. I fear the Hollywood treatment. Currently, the only studio I trust to make a halfway decent movie out of a really good book is Walden Media.

The link asks pretty much the same questions, including our Special Bonus Lightning Round: what book should be made into a movie? Leave your opinions (and your opinions on the comments at EW) in the comments section.

I'd like to see Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book made into a movie.

Hunger Games, but I think that's in the works. My daughter says Sisters Grimm.
