It's hard to believe that Amazon was once just an online bookstore, before it became the most popular Internet retailer, selling things from video games to groceries. Now the online super-mall is going one step further by entering the movie-making business.

Amazon has recently announced that they are going to help develop a film with studios and potential partners. The movie is going to be a big-screen adaptation of the novel "The Stolen Child", by Keith Donahue."With our brand and our retail experience and customers around the world we believe we can be an extremely valuable partner in the development, marketing and distribution of this film," said Amazon spokesman Drew Herdener.

The Stolen Child is currently #62 in the list of best-selling books on Amazon. Amazon is not going to co-finance the film, but they said they want to be active in helping to develop and create the movie.
