The word is that Roland Emmerich is directing a 3D blockbuster version of Asimov's book. According to IMDB it is set to release in 2011--I haven't heard much personally. In any case, I hadn't read an Asimov book for five or six years and decided to re-read the original Foundation today. First, I Emmerich is probably not well-suited for a true adaptation of Foundation. The book revolves around mind battles, psychohistory, politics, and board meetings. Second, it really is a group of short stories. It covers more than 80 years in the first book (which hardly works in a 2 hour blockbuster.) Don't really see how this could be any good. Hollywood already ruined I, Robot (starring Will Smith.) If it does any good--it will spark some interest in the books.
