Classic Science Fiction Novels Adapted for TV Very Soon

Saw a posting over at today about four television series coming up on the SyFy network based on beloved and award-winning science fiction novels. They are -
  1. Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clarke
  2. The Expanse (based on a book series by Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, under the pen name James S. A. Corey)
  3. Gateway by Federik Pohl
  4. Hyperion by Dan Simmons
The first two are hitting the small screen in December and the latter two have been greenlit for production. Childhood's End is a three-part mini-series and The Expanse a 10-part season.

Here's the trailer for Childhood's End. I remember the book as being particularly creepy.

What classic science fiction novel are you dying to see developed for TV or film?

Childhood's End (1953)
Books 1-4 (2012-2014)
Book 5 (2015)
Gateway won the 1978 Hugo Award for Best Novel, the 1978 Locus Award for Best Novel, the 1977 Nebula Award for Best Novel, and the 1978 John W. Campbell Memorial Award for Best Science Fiction Novel. That is beyond a hat-trick.
Hyperion (1989) first book in the Hyperion Canto series won the 1990 Hugo award
for best novel. On my top 100 list of all-time favourite SF novels.
