What books/movies need to be adapted into games?

7WONDERS_COLOSSE(1)I am a huge advocate of Kickstarter for Board Games, you just need to look at my account and see the collection I am starting to amass.

I recently backed a game called Endangered Orphans of Condyle Cove, an adorably morbid little game from a company called Certifiable Games who recently got the rights to make a game based on "Who Goes There?", the John Campbell novella that was the basis for John Carpenter's "The Thing". 

The idea and artwork behind this is intriguing, another sort of Werewolf-esque game, there plan is to bring it to Kickstarter following there successful funding of Endangered Orphans but this got me think, What Book or Movie franchise is yet to be utilised and needs to be?

For me, I would love to see a fun adaptation of the Studio Ghibli classic "Spirited Away", some kind of bathhouse managing game in the vein of Agricola or Puerto Rico, where you have to make competing bathhouses to impress the most characters, all of which are as out there as the movie itself!
