Morgan Freeman says that despite all the long delays, his planned adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke's legendary sci-fi novel "Rendezvous with Rama" is still in the works. "It’s a very intellectual science fiction film, a very difficult book to translate cinematically. [At least] we have found it very difficult to translate, to get ready for film...But it’s worth doing. We’re still at it."
This is what a news-report from MTV Movies Blog boils down to, and it was issued as recent as August 21st. I had written Morgan Freeman's production company REVELATION a while back about an official statement on the project. Their reply was that official announcements will be made within the next months.
It's good to read that David Fincher is still firmly attached to the project. And with this new statement, and with the IMDB update earlier this year maybe there is hope we see a green light for this production as early as 2008 ... for a 2009 or 2010 release ... Oh my god, I have to stop: I'm drooling all over my keyboard.
Thanks to Angus for reporting. Here's the articles:
