I'd really like to see HBO/Netflix/etc do an epic space opera based on a novel series.

More monsters in the Arctic! (Which made me wonder, which has more monsters by now, the North or South Pole?)

AMC has put in development The Terror, a drama series adaptation of the 2007 bestselling novel by Dan Simmons, which is being executive produced by Scott Free TV, Television 360 and feature producer Alexandra Milchan. Written by hot feature writer David Kajganich, The Terror is set in 1847 when the crew of a Royal Naval expedition to find the Arctic’s treacherous Northwest Passage discovers instead a monstrous predator – a cunning and vicious Gothic horror that stalks the ships in a desperate game of survival, the consequences of which could endanger the region and its native people forever.
So when is Michael Bay going to do a movie about a sudden plague monsters being freed from their Arctic/Antarctic prisons by global warming?
Funny you should mention that. I was watching the original fifties version of THE BLOB a few weeks ago. At the end, after the frozen Blob has been airlifted to North Pole, some general announces that the world is safe . . . "as long as the Arctic stays cold."

We are so screwed . . . .
