No, I didn't type that subject line wrong....The Dragonriders of Pern is becoming a movie.

Discuss....

Well well, I was wondering how long until that would happen. I know Anne McCaffrey has turned down several offers in the past.

I've been thinking lately that special effects have progressed enough that it would work out well without coming off as cheesy. :)

Yeah I'm only vaguely familiar with this series, but I remember hearing somewhere that McCaffrey was kind of a recluse and protective of her works, so I guess this is more impressive than I originally thought.

I read most of the Pern books. (I haven't read the two latest though.) I'm pretty familiar with them, but it's been a few years so my memory of some things are probably a bit foggy at times.

They just haven't been the same since her son started collaborating with her though. They're still good books, but they're missing...something.

I wonder if her son is the driving force behind the movie adaptation, then?

I don't know, here's a press release: http://annemccaffrey.net/index.php?p=42

It sounds like Anne McCaffrey is just finally ready for a movie to be made. ?
