Aw, jeez. This'll be worse than the De Laurentiis Dune or the appalling Nightflyers. I hope it's not as bad as the travesty that got made of Varley's Millennium, though.
Did you hear that Miyazaki bought the rights to Earthsea? After Howl's I have mixed feelings about this. But, even if the result isn't really Earthsea, it'll most likely be a fine and entertaining film. Unlike, say, Doom.
