Fox Ready to Unspeakably @#$% Up Another Classic Isaac Asminov Story


?I love Isaac Asimov. I love his books, his muttonchops, and the fact the he pretty much wrote something for every section of the Dewey Decimal System. I hate the I, Robot movie, which took the title of one Asmiov’s most classic works and turned it into the exact opposite or what he wrote. I don’t care if the movie stands on its own; to me, the movie shit on the book, so fuck it. I not going to forgive or forget.

So now that Fox has announced they’re developing Asimov’s Caves of Steel — another robot book, starring the human/robot detective duo of Elijah Baley and R. Daneel Olivaw — I am pre-infuriated. I sincerely doubt however the story will be adapted for modern audiences will fall within my very narrow, fan-crazed range of what is acceptable. The only thing that makes me feel slightly better about this is that apparently the screenwriter is also an astronomer at the Chandra X-Ray Observatory. So maybe he can’t write for a shit, but maybe being a scientist will count for something. (Via First Showing)
