From Haldeman’s LiveJournal:
Ridley Scott to make The Forever War
Fox 2000 has acquired rights to Joe Haldeman’s 1974 novel “The Forever War,”
and Ridley Scott is planning to make it into his first science fiction film
since he delivered back-to-back classics with “Blade Runner” and “Alien.”
“Whoop,” Mr. Haldeman is quoted as saying, “de do!”
Seriously, it shows how long these things take. The first word I got from Scott’s
office was last November. I was not supposed to say anything specific until
Scott made a statement.
So he has. And Whoop de do, says me.
