That was a great book, I don't see how he can condense it into a film without compromising the story. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

i've read the book, it would be interesting to see how the movie deals with the time span.

read the book and the cartoon too, both good

I hope it will not be a disaster as the Starship Troopers movie from Robert A. Heinlein book (which is a good one)....

Been thinking the same thing guess they might just cherry pick the bit they want and make a mess of it same as happened to Starship Trooper.

I have never read this book but it does sound great reading the blurbs from it. The difference between this possible movie and Starship Troopers will definitely be the director and a budget. Scott is a good director and if they give him the $$$ i'm sure he will do well with it. Now guess the question is how much of the movie will he cut up? Since everyone doesn't think he could fit the movie in a 2-3hr timeframe.

Scott should make a good job of it, but and I don't know if anyone has seen his Robin Hood film but WTF was that ending all about it look like the start of Saving Private Ryan or did they just run out ideas.
