Dragonriders of Pern: The Movie?

Well, probably the smartest attitude is “don’t get your hopes up.” But the lite SF series “Dragonriders of Pern” by Hugo Award winner Anne McCaffrey has been picked up for film by Copperheart Entertainment, makers of…well, some film called “Ginger Snaps”, which is apparently horror. While this has gotten some fans in a bit of a tizzy, caution is advised. The Pern rights have been sold before a couple of times and nothing has ever come of it. As, so far, the only news from Copperheart for several months has been the same press release issued in different forums, whether there will be an actual movie is yet to be seen.
