C.J. Cherryh.
Joan Vinge.
S.M. Stirling (ISLAND IN THE SEA OF TIME would make a cool movie.)
David Weber (not for lack of trying, though.)
E.E. Smith (I don't count the anime abomination.)
Frederik Pohl
Piers Anthony

The fantasy list would be at least as long.
He had a cartoon adaptation called "The Flight of Dragons" that was based on his book "The Dragon and the George".

I would love to see William King's Trollslayer series made into a movie but it won't happen any time soon since Games-Workshop holds a tight fist on their IP.

I would also like to see a film adaptation of Carlos Castaneda "Don Jaun" series.
