We all know that Harry Potter, Twilight, and 50 Shades of Grey were all based on novels. In this gallery, we're going to show you some of the Hollywood blockbusters you didn't know were based on books. Let's begin!
You'd think that the script for Jurassic Park would have came straight from a Hollywood screenwriter. Well this is not the case. The movie was actually based off of Michael Crichton's Book "DinoPark".
The Blockbuster I Know What You Did Last Summer came to the big screen in 1997. The Novel had already been internationally sold on book shelves around the world in 1973.
Most people associate the horror classic Psycho with Alfred Hitchcock. That is correct, since he was the director of the masterpiece! But the screenplay (penned by Joseph Stefanoi) was largely base on the novel of the same name by Robert Bloch.
