again on movies...

the previous movie-related post started something in my mind... which book/comic would you like to see (decently) translated in celluloid by next year? if I were to pick one right now, I'd probably say The Reality Disfunction. there's enough material to shoot three movies, there's plenty of charismatic charachters (Al Capone, for God's sake), plenty of Hollywood-style action, spaceships, whole fleets of them, anti-matter weaponry, culture clashes (between Adamists and Edenists), and then more: Nanotech, Aliens, there's even Zombies!!! it's a free-for-all extravaganza. and it also works out pretty well. There's a princess in a high castle, although the blue prince is a bit on the cheap side, and at the end he goes with another girl - good old fashioned english upper class girl... did hamilton manage to leave anything out? it's "The importance of being Earnest" meets "Gone with the Wind" meets "Battlestar Galactica"... Uhm, I better go to work now... but if you want to jot down your favorite conversion, please do so. and good afternoon ;-)

Hum intersting question luca, I would say an dark one.
Sinn city already made, what about a vertigo from DC like the preacher or even better the sand man from neil gaiman?

BAO luca

the sand man is one of my preferred series but would be, imho, too boring for a movie... it's too close to high literature... not much happening...
