    Given how free and easy Emmerich is with real history (cf. The Patriot/10,000BC) I can only wonder how free and easy he will be with someone else's invented history.

      Eek! This looks like another travesty to be visited upon the works of Isaac Asimov.

        It seems to me that while the original trilogy are not very cinematic (for all the reasons already mentioned), the series evolved into longer and more character driven narratives (as opposed to generational episodic stories dealing with each crisis) over time and the later books are far more suitable for adapting. Prelude to Foundation and Forward the Foundation could work quite well, for example.

        Either way, my expectations are very, very low for this.

            Could be worse... could be Paul Verhoeven. He already viciously mangled one great SF classic author's work.
