Scalzi's Old Man's War Optioned

Details here
It’s got a producer, screenwriter and director attached.

Awesome news!

Congratulations, John!

I have been waiting for this day for so long. But also dreading it because I don’t know what they’d change.

The marathon sex sessions are probably right out. Likely so is the green skin. “Asshole” will probably stay. After that, I’m unsure.

Me too. Such a good book, I hope they do it more justice than most.

Is Scalzi writing the screenplay?

Oh please please PLEASE don’t let them screw it up!

The Whatever post says David Self is writing it. His resume (The Wolfman, Road to Perdition, Thirteen Days, The Haunting) is pretty hit-and-miss so who knows what it’ll look like.
