Apparently Universal have picked up the option on Moorcock's Albino Prince. The thought is that it could become Universal's Lord Of The Rings.
I'm wondering if LOTR is about to have the effect that Star Wars had on SF film making way back in the seventies. Perhaps we are about to see a renaissance of the Fantasy genre on celluloid - or perhaps just a bunch of second division LOTR wannabes. Only time will tell

From what I see on the hollywood stock exchange, there aren't a huge amount of fantasies in production - there are quite a few in development but we all know that development can end up being the road to infinity.
There has been a surge of comics/graphic novels being made into movies though. Who knows if any of those will be any good.
The Elric movie is actually in production, it passed through the quagmire of development pretty quickly. Couldn't say if that is a good thing or a bad thing.

New Line had LOTR and now has Kong, Paramount has Barsoom, Disney has Hitch-hikers, Warner has Potter, and now we see the last of the shambling titans drag its way over to throw a hat in the ring. Cool. I'm glad to live in an such an era.
