Very exciting news. I love Morgaine novels. I can only hope something will come out of it.

I would love this, and it shoudn be reasonably suited for a movie, but I am concerned that I've never heard of Aaron Magnani and his imdb is nearly bare.

I'll be interested to see what comes of this, if anything. If it gets made, and if they get the right cast, right screenplay, and shoot it right, it could be killer, but then again it could end up as a damp squib and nothing come of it, or it could be a piece of schlock. Won't hold my breath in any case, though.

As a long time fan and avid reader of all Science Fiction, I am overjoyed to see CJ Cherryh's work finally on the way to the Big Screen. A multiple Hugo award winning author, CJ's work is of the highest quality. Her thousands (and thousands!) of fans are solidly behind her. I can hardly wait!

CJ Cherryh's Morgaine series was one of the first scifi series I'd read and the quality of the story and writing spoiled me for any other author not of her level of sophistication. The universe is so complete, and the characters so believable that this would make a wonderful set of movies.

I'd prefer the Faded Sun trilogy.
