^^ You've obviously not heard of The Changeling, Borrowed Lives, World War Z and They Marched into Sunlight. Clint Eastwood's directing The Changeling, Angelina Jolie will be starring in it. World War Z is being produced by Brad Pitt, no casting news yet, and They Marched into Sunlight will be directed by Paul Greengrass.

Not bad for someone 'stuck doing comics'. Comics have always been an important medium for JMS, that's not likely to change anytime soon, whether he's producing feature scripts or not.

Then, of course, there's the likely second volume of The Lost Tales as well. The first set exceeded all expectations laid down by WBs. Granted, those expectations wouldn't have been as strenuous as those probably in mind for the next Trek movie, but seriously, when was the last time Trek actually exceeded expectations on any level?

The man only had one creative project in his head for what is now close to two decades.
Which one might that be? B5? Jeremiah? Rising Stars? Supreme Power? Spider-man? Any of his feature work?

An odd statement when we're talking about the virtues of one Rick Berman, who was stuck on Trek for what? Oh, nearly two decades.

You be sure to let me know when Berman's got a feature coming out
So you know JMS's career like the back or your hand but don't understand the business & personal reasons why B&B stayed at a job they were getting paid well for or why they couldn't afford to leave?

I'm pretty sure you've seen Berman's work & probably own much of it too.
