I think you have to be specific on ypur dialog when writing a script. Writing in a book is form into paragraph while making a movie script it's a form of dialog which exchanging the conversation using open and closing bracket, using of sounds, etc.

I believe most books that will do well as movies will or must have been bestsellers and if you have a book of this nature ,why not, one can go ahead and make a movie of it and eager fans will be ready to see it.

The first thing to do will be to turn the book into a script,most film makers Will like to read a script and not necessarily a book

It might not be easy to get your book turned into a script noticed, you might use some agency to help push your script to where producers and film maker will see your script.

You might not have the money for production, so try going into contract with film markers and discuss on the financial aspect of screen playing the script.

A good book usually makes a lousy movie because they are totally different ways of telling a story. You can discuss a concept in a book, but in a movie you can only present images. Consider a book that begins: "One morning I woke to find that I had turned into a huge insect." It would take several minutes of images to set up that scene.
