Ben Affleck's Argo makes it look like a Star Wars ripoff.
It would be, but I'd rather see it made than Lord of Light.
I've seen that web site with the orginal material. Lord of Light would suck as a movie. Trying to compact that much depth and gravitas into two and a half hours would be just like two pounds of baloney in a one pound bag. And there's no way in hell Kirby's production sketches could be built into a live action set without CGI or making the whole thing a cartoon.
