Warner Bros. is looking to adapt Tad Williams' OTHERLAND for the big screen - its four installments are entitled "City of Golden Shadow," "River of Blue Fire," " Mountain of Black Glass," and "Sea of Silver Light" respectively.
THIS piece in Variety describes the project thusly...
Story for the adaptation is set 100 years in the future and follows a group of unexpected heroes who must escape an assassin and make their way through epic digital worlds to unravel a conspiracy that threatens to destroy humanity
When I first saw the word "Otherland" in Variety's headline, I imagined the wrong words and knee-jerked with glee, delighted that someone out there was either dorky enough or insane enough to reboot CBS' long ago defunct series "OtherWORLD..."
I know, I know. I'm easily confused and my Geekiness is sloppier and more obscure than many folks. What can I say?
