mentioned in a post earlier today that it is Isaac Asimov's birthday.
The Wikipedia entry on Isaac Asimov notes that he collaborated on a script for "I, Robot" with Harlan Ellison. "Asimov is quoted as saying that Ellison's screenplay would lead to 'the first really adult, complex, worthwhile science fiction movie ever made'."
The "Alien (franchise)" entry in Wikipedia states, "On December 5th 2008 Sigourney Weaver hinted in an interview with MTV that she and Ridley Scott are working on an Alien spinoff film which will focus on the chronicles of Ellen Ripley rather than the Aliens."
It seems to me that one of the directions a new Ripley movie could go would be to further examine the androids and their relationships with humans. This could potentially tie in with the Asimov "Caves of Steel" and "Naked Sun" novels.
So I'm releasing this meme into the wild: Someone contact Sigourney Weaver and/or Ridley Scott and suggest that they secure the rights to "The Caves of Steel" (since the "I, Robot" title was used in 2004 for the movie starring Will Smith). Persuade Ellison to do the script (although, I'd also settle for Joss Whedon) and add the Ripley character to the plot. Make the movie.
Ok, I just think it would be neat to have Sigourney Weaver performing in a work that is legitimately based on Asimov's writing. Anyway, pass it on.
