Another book I think could be an incredible movie (in the right hands) is Replay by Ken Grimwood.
Jeff Winston dies of a heart attack in 1988 and suddenly it's 1963, he's 18, and he's living his life over again with all his previous memories intact. Each time he dies, he replays again. Replay predates the similarly themed Groundhog Day and Russian Doll, and has a much grander scale. I've re-read it countless times and think about it often.
People have been trying to make it into a movie for many years. At one point Eric Roth was writing the screenplay and Robert Zemeckis was attached to direct (you may remember them as the writer and director behind Forrest Gump, a movie that dealt with similar themes but without the sci-fi twist), but they eventually left the project and it has since changed hands many times.
