Proyas bringing Heinlein story to big screen - Yahoo! News: "LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The sci-fi saturation of the film business shows little sign of letup. The latest project is a feature based on a Robert Heinlein novela and written and directed by Alex Proyas.

Phoenix Pictures principals Mike Medavoy, Arnie Messer and Brad Fischer will produce the adaptation of 'The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag,' which they describe as a complex psychological thriller with plenty of action as well as some love interest. A title change is likely."

God help us!
Hollywood should just leave literary properties alone. The one or two times they come close to something good were original ideas. You notice I used the phrase "come close."

I double dutch dare them to make a movie about the life and loves of Lazarus Long. And for extra points they have to keep the rating PG-13 or under.
