There is news that Anne McCaffrey’s world of Pern will be brought to film sometime soon. We’ve heard this before, of course, but this one looks more positive. Ms. McCaffrey mentioned that there were negotiations ongoing when we saw her at Dragon*Con last September.
I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, I love this series (with a couple exceptions) and it’s mythos. Seeing it on Film or TV would be great! On the other hand, I love this series and I’d hate to see it trashed by shitty filming, directing, acting, re-writing or whatever. I harken back to the first movie made out of Dune and shudder to think what could happen to Pern.
Hopefully, if it happens, they won’t screw it up too badly.
