Shorah, fellow cave-dwellers!
A much-anticipated update about the Myst movie was posted today by Isaac Testerman. It's a long and detailed account, and here are the major points that were mentioned:
- A movie adaptation of the "Book of Ti'ana" would be very hard to use to start a potential franchise, so they've gone back to the drawing board for a story.
- Adrian has stepped away from the project completely, making Isaac the lead producer.
- Cyan's contract with MFG was expiring, and they chose not to renew it. Instead, Delve Films (Isaac's company) purchased the option.
- Another big-name Hollywood producer has joined them, along with Hunt Lowry and Mark Johnson.
- Other things are in the works other than a Myst movie, on multiple audio/visual/interactive platforms to bring in new fans.
- The Myst movie site probably won't be fixed soon due to legal issues.
So there you go. Some signs of life for the first time in months! And if you want to read the full update, read the MOULa forum announcement here.
