  • Well shit, minus 2 internets for me I guess. Still, anything we can see without freeze-framing? After all, I brought this up in regards to the viability of a Ready Player one film.

  • Consider myself thoroughly trounced, humbled, and out-nerded. Head bowed, I skulk back into the shadows, lurking, machinations of revenge reflecting and refracting wildly on my shattered ego, like so many flashlight beams on a blood soaked crime scene. [/melodrama]

    As I said, all it takes is the right amount of cash dangled in front of Ol' Flannel Shirt and he'll say yes.

Besides, laughable though it may seem, I think "integrity" will prevent us from ever seeing a Star Wars character or object outside of a Star Wars product. Ready Player One is going to need Wreck-It Ralph-level scratch to get anywhere close to its source material.

    I hate to keep beating the same drum, but this is the most egregious i've seen yet.

    There's a whole campaign of these on top of print and billboard ads. It sickens me and I don't even like Star Wars.

    Ugh. I don't think anyone likes those.

    No one agrees with me on this?

  • Mort- I have always wanted to see this Discworld story adapted for film. Although, there have been a few misgivings about it since its focused on the death character. Last thing I remember about this booking being adapted was that they wanted to remove Death. Which didn’t please the author. Kinda completely missing the point there. I remember hearing something about Disney being interested in adapting the book for their animated canon, as a 2D film, but they didn’t get the rights to it.



    The King's Damosel- I want this to be made as a 2D animated feature. I refuse to believe that Quest of Camelot served as an inspiration to this book. All Camelot ever was, was an obvious quick cash-in on Disney’s animated features as well as people mimicking the daylights out of Disney. I want to see a faithful adaption of this book, with a PG13 or even close to an R rated rating. Not an awful Disney cashin that is the definition of suicide.

  • Personally I'd like to see more Jack Ryan books be turned into films. I like all of the ones done so far, and I don't really care about the age in-continuity. Would never happen but I'd especially like to see Debt of Honor & Executive Orders adapted.

    More realistically, and sticking with Tom Clancy I'd pay to see a film of Rainbow Six. I'd pay even more to see Red Storm Rising especially if the time it was set in wasn't changed (it is my favourite book of his).

    I live in hope that the film & TV adaptations of The Dark Tower series goes ahead. It's an ambitious idea, but it's also an ambitious series of books.

    Also there are a few Dean Koontz books I wouldn't mind seeing adapted (if done well, but I guess that's true for any adaptation), specifically From The Corner of His Eye and the Odd Thomas series. Actually, strike the last I just remembered that there is an upcoming adaptation of Odd Thomas.
