Movies from books: coming soon

Having said that I never have time to post, it occurred to me that I do have one topic that's relevant that I'd like to throw out: movies still to come this year that are based on books. Here's the list of those I'm interested in seeing:

War of the Worlds, based on the book by H.G. Wells.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, based on the book by Roald Dahl (and this one is supposed to be closer to the book than the Gene Wilder film)
Everything is Illuminated, based on the book by Jonathan Safran Foer
In Her Shoes, based on the book by Jennifer Weiner
Jarhead, based on the fabulous non-fiction book by Anthony Swofford
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling, of course
Brokeback Mountain based on the short story by E. Annie Proulx, from her collection "Wyoming Stories."
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis.

Anyone else looking forward to a particular adaptation?
