    Is this going to be a live-action or animated film?

    I hope it'll be animated/claymation.. somewhat like "The Nightmare before Christmas"

    Theyve never done a Discworld film have they?

    Im not sure if I would go and see it if it came out. In your mind (at least in my mind) you have one set of images for characters and places that you read and this is often corrupted by viewing the characters on screen. Youll never be able to think of them the same way again. At least thats what I find with many books that have been made into films, the Lord of the Rings, Masyter and Commander, etc

    Looks like live-action from this http://www.paulkidby.com/news/index.html

    Yeah but isnt Albert meant to be really old and crotchety and stuff? I dont think David Jason has the right kind of look for him, especially if you look at the art of the Discworld book. Still, its a Discworld film, im open to it.

    Really looking forward to this, hopefully it'll be a big hit and we'll get to see some of pratchetts other charcters grace the silverscreen

    I'm looking forward to this because, unlike other authors *Cough* Dan Brown *Cough*, I don't think that Terry Pratchett will sell out and let the film be ****e.

    I remember hearing about the time Pratchett was approached about making a Mort film. Meeting went well until they said they wanted to leave out 'this death character'.
