I've said before "They have a Foundation movie already, except they added magic; it's called Star Wars." Matt Yglesias thinks it'll suck because of the director. Frankly I have a hard time imagining how it could be good, just because some books should remain books. As Asimov himself said, decades after he wrote the series he picked up Foundation, starting reading, and waited...for...something...to...happen. And it didn't. Better in print than film. Besides, it's still in development hell - let's see if it beats Atlas Shrugged to the big screen.
