I'll give the Earthsea series a try, Bohemian. I've heard nothing but good things about it. And I second suec's recommendation for the Pullman series - it was really good, very original.

How brilliant! I was only thinking that it would be good to do and lo! Here it comes. I guess it had to, really. The Lord of the Rings... Harry Potter... There's obviously potential for more in the genre. I like the idea of Nicole Kidman. Actually, I've been off reading it again. I'd forgotten just how much there was to it. But I do like the idea of Johnny playing Lee Scoresby.

Uncle Diggory!


I could have sworn it was Uncle Andrew (Mr. Andrew Ketterley)

Johnny would also do great playing the voice of the Lion...Aslan was it?

:blush:


Uncle Andrew was the evil old uncle who took Polly and Diggory to Narnia for the first time in "The Magician's Nephew". When the four Pevensee children go to Narnia in "The Lion the Witch and Wardrobe" they are staying with their Uncle Diggory (same person), and go in through his wardrobe. I think Uncle Diggory is the one es was asking about.

Oohhh, that is good news - it is wonderful material for a movie. I just hope they do it right. Does anyone remember the first animated "The Hobbit"? :yuck:

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -
Wow! What a ride!
