[Slashdot] Rumors of Pratchett Film

kongjie writes "The BBC reports on the rumored possibility of Terry Pratchett's novel Wee Free Men being made into a Hollywood film, with Raimi attached to it. This would be the first, although in the past his stuff has made the television screen."

  1. It had better not suck like the animated ones did.

    Paraphrased conversation from previous attempt to make Mort:

    Studio Exec: Terry, the script is great, but test-audiences were kind of depressed by a seven-foot-tall skeleton, so we need you to take him out.
    Terry Pratchett: Death?
    SE: Yeah.
    TP: Have you read the script?
    SE: Yeah, and it's great! But we really need you to take Death out.
    TP: He's the main character!
