"Right now the rights are with a new production company and they're thinking about writing manuscripts and finding a new writer to do it. They'd like to make a short miniseries on it. First they were trying to make a feature film for years, and it was almost impossible because the novel is very long. You can't do it in an hour and a half. So now with the rise of TV and different possibilities ... they're thinking of doing a short series, and that seems to be a good way to try to do it. But there's nothing definite about it. Hollywood is very flukey in that way. You think you're going to have something done, and then it's not made."
