Ringworld movie by Cameron?

by on Oct.09, 2001, under Movies

Data is trickling in. According to our friends at Bureau42, Larry Niven has made a deal with James Cameron (Titanic, the Terminator movies) for a Ringworld movie. Coming Attractions has details as well. Apparently Niven himself announced it at Albacon this weekend, saying the deal came at 12:30AM Saturday morning…I hope I manage to finish the Encyclopedia of Known Space by then…

Update 10/10: It looks like this was false. Ain’t It Cool News says Niven’s agent is denying it.

    I just posted a followup to Bureau 42. Niven himself has said that the story is inaccurate. It seems like he’s choosing words carefully, presumably for legal reasons. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
