Isaac Asimov’s venerable Foundation series may finally be getting a big-screen adaptation. Previously in development at Fox, Warner Brothers now has it and is giving it over to former New Line heads Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne. Having been considered in the past to be difficult to adapt because of its storyline that spans centuries and a cast of characters that changes with each book (and in some cases, each story within the book), their goal for now is to just adapt the first book, and if it works out, follow on much like they did with The Lord Of The Rings. Fox had previously tried to adapt the trilogy into a single movie.
Just a reminder: Season 3 of Eureka starts tonight at 9PM ET on the Sci Fi Channel with the first of 8 consecutive episodes…the remaining 13 will be held over until 2009 (don’t you just love SFC’s schedule?). While waiting, you can read what Ed Quinn (Nathan Stark) is saying about Season 3.
