2001

Arthur C. Clarke Major adaptations: "2001: A Space Odyssey" Major works unfilmed: "Rendezvous With Rama," "Childhood's End" What gives? Of all of Clarke's work, only two have become feature films, but one of them is a doozy. His collaboration with Stanley Kubrick to create a "good science fiction film" resulted in one of the screen's most lyrical and transcendant works of art: "2001: A Space Odyssey." His follow-up novel, "2010" became a more literal-minded sequel in the 1980s. Despite interest from director David Fincher in adapting "Rama," most of Clarke's work has proved too vast or intellectual to survive the Hollywood process.
