If the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences were to create a category for too many adaptations of a single story the first one would have to go to Anna Karenina. According to Wikipedia there have been 3 stage adaptations, 13 big screen movies, 3 radio presentations, 5 television movies, 3 ballets, 2 theater musicals, and 10 operas. So was it really necessary to make the lucky 13th movie starring Keira Knightley? I'm thinking no.
