12. Robinson Crusoe
The 1719 original story was written by Daniel Defoe. It is a classic novel about the title character’s various adventures—most of which is remembered as the character being shipwrecked on a deserted island off the Caribbean coast of South America.
As most classic stories, it has been adapted for television and film, but is possibly ready for a new iteration.
There have been a couple sequels to the original novel, including The Further Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, Serious Reflections of Robinson Crusoe, and others.
A clever writer could conjure an update to the story.
