I just noticed Deathworld is in the US public domain. I've never read it. Added to my TBR list.
It's one of a trilogy, which I loved to pieces as a teen. No idea how well it would stand up to a reread 30 plus years later. Would be interested to hear what they think from anyone who is about to try it. May consider a revisit myself.

And to return to the OP, I would be interested in seeing Bill made into a movie, despite its juvenile leanings. I always enjoyed Harrison's sense of humour.

For those fans who would like to see a movie made of a Harry Harrison novel, there is a Kickstarter project being run by the director of Repo Man, to do a movie of Bill, the Galactic Hero.

And yes, I have chipped in. My first Kickstarter project...

Linky here

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...-galactic-hero
I'm being a bit dim here, but is this an investment or a donation?

I remember Alex Cox from a movie review show here in the UK many moons ago. His choices were always suitably off the wall and interesting.

Kickstarter pledges are purchases, not investments. You get what is described in each pledge level, depending on how much you pledge.

Pledges only become due if the project meets its funding goal, which this one now has.

You do not receive any equity in the project.

If you have a large pile of cash with no use you could try to contact them. Not that I would say it's very good investment...

Because they are not serious. There is <so> much serious S/F, sometimes you just want to goof off and giggle...

I actually ended up being directed from this kickstarter to the OpenShot Video Editor kickstarter and supported that kickstarter.

He said he was going to use Openshot to edit the movie.

Read the script...Not too optimistic about the movie. A movie shopuld have a flow to it. The script is just a string of vignettes....

I don't have clear picture of original work. But I thought it wasn't too continous. Rather jumpy...
