I read the book and also loved the original movie version. But I don't think the movie is widely seen anymore unless you are really into it. I wouldn't mind a remake of it.

As a general rule I think you can make a new movie version of any book. You will have a rough time, however if the first version is considered a classic.

I just watched that trailer and I have no clue what that movie is about.  WTF!!!!

Roger Waters should be tapped to score this one.

 I'm with you monkeyfoot. One of my 5 fave books of all time and I love the movie too, though it is a surreal one for sure.

Somewhat worried about the idea of a new adaptation no matter how talented the people involved. Kaufman is fantastic but you sure as hell know it's a Kaufman movie when you watch one he wrote, and I don't want to be so aware of him when watching Slaughterhouse 5. Ah well, sounds like it'll be quite a while yet anyway.

Oh and btw, that should be Tralfamadorians, not Trafalmadorians. A pedantic little quibble maybe but when you love the souce material these things become important, lol.

If this film focuses on the beings of Tralfamador more than Billy Pilgrim,or suggest that they put Pilgrim in his situation,the message of the original novel will be lessened,in my opinion.George Roy Hill's version stands as the best.
