    it could be really good or it could really really suck. I think the way the book was written makes for an easy movie , however Hollywood is known for fucking up a sure thing.

    From what I understand they will change the format of the book, and it will be in "real time" instead of flashbacks. I loved the book so I am looking forward to this. And the scenes in the photos above seem like the Israeli border sequence.

    The interviewing process explains and a lot and ties in the story so that NO ONE in Hollywood can fuck up the potential. Havig it real time could be cool but could really fuck things up.
    I hate hollywood.

    This would be so much better as a miniseries - have each of the interviews be a story, or something like that.

    +1

    There are so many ways this could go sideways. It'll be difficult to keep audiences engaged if all we get is 10 minute "episodes" that all end with the protagonists getting overrun and eaten.

    +1 on the miniseries. HBO could have crushed it.

    Yeah, he could be in a lot more blockbusters. Instead, he chooses stuff like Tree of Life

    I'm guessing Pitt will be Wainios, so the Battle of Yonkers and The Battle of Hope are a given, and we'll likely get the female pilot shot down in Louisiana's story. I can also see them following the bodyguard/mercenary from Long Island since it provides a chance at some pokes at reality tv and Hollywood at the beginning. I'm hoping the blind gardener and teen hacker in Japan make the film, but that's a long shot.,
