I'm sort of half hoping it's going into development hell; then maybe a mini series will get made, which IMO will be able to catch the feel of the book much better, instead of trying to cram everything into 2-3 hours.

A mini-series would be heaven! Do you think that's likely or wishful thinking?

Yes… It would be really hard to cover the entire book from beginning to end, though we have a good, imho, example of Peter Jackson’s LOTR screen version

Just think about it- 2 or 3 JS&MN films! :) (of course this is the single novel, but can’t stop dreaming about it :D)

As of mini series: but in this case we won’t see it on the big screen:\, by the way,the quality of special effects in big screen movies is usually better than in mini series.:)

IMDB is showing the release to be in 2008. I agree with angry_in_pink; a miniseries would do better justice to the book than a short movie in a theater. (For this book, 2-3 hours is considered short.)
