    Anyone know if Sky are making any more of those movies?

    While they weren't amazing, I still quite enjoyed them, and would be interested in seeing their take on one of the city watch stories.

    There's a Watch TV show in production, I believe Rhianna (the daughter of Terry as opposed to the singer) will be helping to write it.

    I haven't watched any of the TV shows after seeing a BBC version of Guards Guards many moons ago. Are they worth a watch or will I just stick to the books?
    I would personally think that the series would lend itself more to animation than film

    According to a video interview with Rob W at IDWCon 13, the six part live action series based on the Watch will be released early in 2015. There's also a couple of films being developed, one with a large american company run by a mouse iirc. :)

    Given the news lately I wouldn't expect news for a week or two. But given the news I bet something will happen fair quick now...

    I suppose the Radio adaption of Good Omens is a good medium term solution.

    Reading between the lines on the facebook page I'm not sure that they have got all the pre-production sorted, nevermind started filiming. So I'd say maybe another year:
