I'm an up and coming animator, and iwas just curious. Have you ever thought about turning Forge of God and Anvil of stars into an animated feature?

Hmmm... I don't think the current holders of the option have considered that possibility! In some ways, animation is probably the most efficient way to handle big theme sf and fantasy. Consider THE INCREDIBLES and WALL-E... both visually brilliant.

Hell, Beowulf was a pretty intense production. I didn't even know it WAS animated till I happened to rent it. It was eerie, at least at first: I was simultaneously aware it wasn't quite real and impressed with some of the movement and gestures. They're getting close.

300 was also visually stunning.
