This has potential. I've been waiting for a fantasy film to take on the ancient myths: the gods, the beasts, the quest. It would be a hell of a big investment for a studio though.

From Harryhausen to CGI? Ray'd turn over in his grave (though I don't think he's dead yet).

I loved this film when I was a kid, I think it would be cool to see an updated take.... bring on the Kraken!

I`ve seen this movie like 30 times. It was one of my favorite movies growing up. My first reflex was," why, not another remake!" But I guess a remake could be cool. The funny thing is that stop motion claymatic stuff was pretty cutting edge and cool when it originally came out. I wonder how it will look with the Kraken being CGI?

Ray would not turn over in his grave, even if he were dead. I had the pleasure of seeing him speak a few years ago during the earlier days of CGI, and he seemed to be rather supportive and enthusiastic of the technology. In fact he was a flattered that so many of the designers were clearly influenced by his work, to the point of including homages to his work in their films.

COTTs was always a guilty pleasure for me, but I like Lawrence's work so I'll give it a chance.

I'm really looking forward to this one. Put the money in it, and maybe get Harry Hamlin a cameo?

As long as they exclude the mechanical owl, I'm interested.
