      I've posted the rumor over on the moderated group to see if JMS can tell us if it's completely false. Unfortunately, if he doesn't reply at all, that doesn't mean it's true.

          I'm thinking that there may just be way too much leaking going on for credibility. Now there's another article claiming to have story details.

          POSSIBLE SPOILERS IF YOU FOLLOW THE LINK!!!!!!!!!

          MAY OR MAY NOT BE TRUE!!!!!!!!!!

          Claimed story details of "Forbidden Planet".

          Again, I've posted to see if JMS has anything to say. My personal opinion is that this may well be along the same lines of the rumored '24 minute yonkers scene' in WWZ - what JMS would call balloon juice.

            So how is it "not exactly a prequel"?

            I mean, events prior to the original featuring
            characters from the original and how they got to be where they were at the start of the original is more or less the definition of prequel, no?


            I'm generally against prequels because if you're familiar with the original, then you know where they're going. In this case, everyone dies.. almost. And on top of that, Morbius doesn't even figure out it was his mind that murdered the rest of the crew for another 20 years, so it seems kind of pointless to me.

            As far as the small intro piece, it does kinda resemble some of Joe's previous writings, but then again, it also sounds a hell of a lot like the start of "Contact", so I don't know.

            Quick edit to spoiler protect rumored information. -Jan

              I just put in a spoiler protection on your post, B5_Obsessed. I know, it's just a rumor and the thread's clearly marked but since we don't really know if it's true, I thought it would be better to be safe.

                Possible "Forbidden Planet" Director

                I don't know if this was already covered on another thread, but AICN is reporting that James Cameron is very interested in directing "Forbidden Planet." It seems kinda early, especially where Cameron's still working on "Avatar" but if this does pan out, wow.

                    I covered the potentially new information, not anything that dealt with the original movie. I'm don't know the original all that well, though, so if I missed something that wasn't in the original, please fix it.

                    Thanks,

                      Now they're calling it a trilogy

                      According to Latino Review, which does get stuff wrong.

                        (also posted on the newsgroup)

                        And the Latino Review piece really makes me wonder just what exactly they're reading. Because I don't think it's a script. That article talks about a prologue to the script and an epilogue.

                        Excuse me? Screenplays don't *have* prologues or epilogues.

                        Okay, let me expand on that. *JMS's* screenplays don't have prologues or epilogues. I've seen a lot of his scripts and can only recall two instances where there was anything at all after FADE OUT. One was a dedication and one was a 'To Be Continued'. That's it.

                        IF it's legit at all, I seriously doubt it's a script.

                            Cineblend passes on the News/Rumor

                            It is frequently amazing how rumors propogate. Cineblend picked up the IESB.net's "scoop" that James Cameron wished to direct.

                            http://www.cinemablend.com/new/James...net-11332.html

                            As somewhat of an afterthough, James Cameron is almost on the other side of the spectrum to Clint Eastwood. Whereas Eastwood prides himself on efficiency and capturing the moment, Cameron is more concerned with detail.

                              So, JMS wants/has to re-write the entire script because so many details lacked into the communities. That's a pity IMO, but perhaps he'll have the chance to improve the script now, as he said himself...
