What are the chances of this being made into a movie?
Christian Bale for Turin?!?!

when i was reading it i actually thought 'know what? this could be a really, really awesome film' but i don't think the chances are too high. also: Christian Bale? could have been worse i guess, perhaps someone darker

i really hope they dont. that would screw it all up. i want them to wait until a real director can make a faithful reproduction.

Yeah. Which will be never.

They'd make changes to the plot for no reason whatsoever. To make it American-friendly they'd make the goodies shout about Freedom all the time. To make it family-friendly they'd make one of the characters comically cute. To make it moron-friendly they'd add a female character in a medieval bikini. Then they'd bolt on a happy ending and probably have a pop star singing over the top of it.

When was a decent film ever made from a book, anyway?
