Another  Hyperion fan!  Excellent...

>>>And another.  Simmons reports that all four books are  being written as 
one three-hour movie, I believe, for Martin Scorsese.  I  have a feeling 
Scorsese will end up just exec-producing it, though.
Hyperion exists on that line of great SF books that are literature which  
cannot reasonably be translated into film, and those that are good stories that  
can.  I bring this up because I find Wolfe perhaps the living SF writer  whose 
work is SO book-ish that I can't imagine it being adapted to film.   On the 
other end are the many SF books which seem to have been written with an  
ultimate movie adaptation in mind.
