From the man who brought you Blade Runner and Alien............

Ridley Scott intends to direct The Forever War



As you may have guessed by my nom-de-internet, it is one of my favourite SF books (along with it's (almost) prequel, Forever Peace, and it's sequel, Forever Free.

Here is the wiki summary of the book

Servalan is definitely right up there with the best of them - but you can't beat an alien uber-bitch with an 80s perm.

Eek, not sure what to make of V. Didn't like the remake of Battlestar Gallactica at all.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other Snippets

I remember when they first said they would remake BSG, and changed starbucks sex, I thought no way and boycotted it.

Then on an offchance i picked the miniseries up on budget DVD and went WOW! what have i missed.

S1 was great, S2 was amazing, fell flat a bit in S3, but came back very strong in S4. Can't wait for the last 10 episodes. for once a remake that is worthy of something. I just hope they do the same standard for V.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other Snippets

Showtime have ordered a 4th and 5th season of Dexter already. Both will be 12 episodes and the first will start filming in the spring of 2009.
