    I am asking this question mainly because I want to find the next great fantasy book series to read before they are made into movies/TV. Anyone has any recommendations?

    Kingkiller Chronicles has potential after a great start.

    They tried the Shanara chronicles, I liked it, but not many watched it.

    Probably overrating Hollywood but Mistborn would be an amazing, fresh trilogy.

    No doubt Kingkiller could be amazing and on a small budget too.

    Benji is being remade. That's a strong candidate.

    based purely on books sales it would be Wheel of Time, but the special effects needed might be cost prohibitive

    In my opinion (I only read until book 6 though) that would be better if done right than Game of Thrones.

    I've never read it, but Faerie Tale by Raymond E. Feist, was a popular read in high school. Popular, because of the sex scenes, LOL.

    Sex & nudity, that's HBO material.

    Lord of the Rings. Any version of the books will be made into a trilogy.

    Hmm, maybe The Black Company? It's gritty with great characters.

    This is actually a good candidate. WOT might be to difficult. Although they did manage with GOT. But WOT does not have the nudity.

    I once heard they were thinking about a movie Based on the second book of the Malazan book of the fallen. But that was years ago. And I am Pretty sure that idea got cancelled

    Stephen King's Dark Tower maybe, I know the movie has cast Idris Elba and matthew Mcconaughey (I think) so that may be a good bet.
