The Poisonwood Bible has never been made into a movie, and one has not been planned at this point.  There are no movies in preproduction that have been announced to the public.

Interestingly enough, not only is there no movie version of The Poisonwood Bible, there are no movie versions of any of her books!  I did find a similar movie though, called Nowhere in Africa.  It is about a group of Jews in World War II that flee to Kenya.  They struggle similarly to the characters in the Congo.  It is about a clash of cultures.

I think that movies made from books are an excellent idea.  I subscribe to the belief that a movie should not be exactly like the book, but should maintain the spirit and theme of the book.
