What annoys me about Hollywood is that they keep doing sequels and reboots, despite the enormous number of potentially brilliant movies that could be made from various SF and fantasy novels. Just off the top of my head:
The Fountains of Paradise
Saberhagen's Berserker series
The Bolo books
Ringo's Posleen stuff
The Dahak books
And most of Ben Bova's near-future SF.
I don't think Orion's Arm, the Culture books by Ian M Banks, or any other far-future stuff would make very good movies. Too much explanation required, and too far outside anyone's experience.
Wasn't there a Lucifer's Hammer film in the 70's? As for anything D&D - I suspect that we can 'thank' Marlon Wayans for shooting that franchise to pieces with his execrably poor Dungeons and Dragons films
