    I'm halfway through the book and man, I haven't laughed this hard in a long time :up:
    I know this was planned years ago (Terry Gilliam was supposed to direct, I believe), but it got stuck on development hell or something? :huh:

    This would be a brilliant movie, they should totally make it :(

    Any fans of the book in here?

    I love the book, but honestly after Hitchhiker's Guide, I'd rather it not be made. Unless BBC or Edgar Wright did something with it.

    Really sucks about Terry Pratchett though.

    Hmm....yeah, I guess a TV series would be better.
    Still, I'd like it to be made :(

    Damn funny book. I read it back in college when I finally got around to reading The Sandman and thought "this Gaiman fellow is a damn good writer" and then began reading some of his other comics and his novels.

    It also got me interested in Pratchett's Discworld series, though I'm having a hard time finding a bookstore in town with a copy of each book in the series.

    Terry Gilliam of Monty Python fame has been attatched to direct this for some time now. From what I understand there is even a script out there, not word on if it will ever be made though. If it was it would be a great movie. It is one of my favorite books by Neil Gaiman next to Neverwhere ( which would also make a great movie)

    Awesome book. One of the few that's actually made me laugh.
