All I can say is…YES. I’m going back to Middle-Earth.
In an interview with MTV (audio available here), director David Fincher talks about Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), along with some of his upcoming projects. Mentioned very briefly is the long-dormant Rendezvous With Rama (which we last mentioned in 2008, and it was pretty dead then), and it wasn’t a good mention. When asked if the interviewer should keep asking about it (around the 14:40 mark), he said, “You should drop that…it’s great, it’s just…a really hard, expensive movie…talk about having the bones have been picked clean by so many other stories.”
No decision has yet been made by Fox on the renewal of Terra Nova after last night’s 2-hour season finale, which fared slightly before last week’s season-low ratings by getting 7.2 million viewers, but to provide a little breathing room the producers are picking up the options on the contracts of series stars Jason O’Mara and Stephen Lang, and they are looking to pick up some heavyweight writers to help out with a second season. With some of the contract pressure off, Fox is expected to decide on its fate in January (and I suspect after some cost negotiations for the expensive show).
