Yeah, they're likely to get the violence right, but not the nudity. What a world.
It's the American way, is it not?

I'm not familiar with Michael Chabon, but a quick skim of his Wiki page made me smile; he seems to have a similar attitude toward writing as I do.
I've read Chabon's The Yiddish Policemen's Union, and I thought it was one of the best genre novels I've read in years. It's both an outstanding alternate-history novel, and an outstanding detective novel. It's Nebula award was well-deserved.

If that's a fair indication of the quality of Chabon's work, then the script is in good hands.

Colour me stoked. The Warlord of Mars, on the big screen at last. It's about time.
