Looks like Ridley (a la aliens and that little sf flick Blade Runner) will be taking a stab at Forever War.
As always, in the 10 minutes since I read of this news, I go through my typical SF/F book I love-adapted-to-movie-cycle.
1. YAY! An awesome piece of literature and an integral part of my past will be up on the Silver Screen!
2. Brief, thoughtful pause.
3. Remembering Starship Troopers. Suits? What suits.
4. Ticking off on my fingers all the crap they’ll cut, be unable to translate into a 2 hour film or just not get.
5. Infinite sadness at another icon of SF/F going down the drain as it’s dumbed down by movie execs.
