    Raise the Titanic..........based on Clive Cussler's book.......but they totally changed the ending, and it pissed Clive off so much , he refused to sell the rights to any more of his books for the next 25 years.

    He finally relented and let them make "Sahara" .

    When asked what he thought..........his famous reply was........"Call me in another 25 years".

    and he hasn't sold the rights to another of his 70+ books yet.

    Off the top of my head, probably L.A. Confidential (1997), based on the novel by James Ellroy.  The novel is part of what's referred to as Ellroy's "LA Quartet," which consists of the novels The Black Dahlia (1987), The Big Nowhere (1988), L.A. Confidential (1990) and White Jazz (1992).  For my money, the greatest crime fiction series ever printed.
