Oh, for the love of...

It has finally happened: Hollywood is going to make a film version of Susan Cooper's The Dark is Rising. And you know who is going to direct it? David L. Cunningham, director of the infamous ABC TV miniseries The Path to 9/11, a man who has professed a desire to be a "missionary" to Hollywood through films with a "Biblical, values-based message".


Damn it, will Hollywood PLEASE stop SCREWING with my beloved childhood classics?!? If you're not going to hire somebody who's willing to do their subject matter justice--and Mr. Cunningham does not have a good track record with this, folks--then please, please just leave those film rights right where you found 'em.

Not to be judgmental, but this movie is going to suck like a black hole.

Well, that DOES seem a little glass half-empty... eh, who am I kidding: you're totally right. It's gonna be terrible.
