Director Tim Miller and I have been messing around with stuff for ages – notably Mindbridge, which has been attracting nibbles for twenty years or so. I'm as glad for him as I am for me, that a movie of the novelette "Seasons" seems finally to be moving.
It will be completely CGI, as far as I know; no human actors. It's his first feature-length film, though his shorter things have been impressive, and he's pretty well-known for them, the hard-edged realism he puts into fantastic scenes. (He did the stunning opening credits for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.)
Anyway, it's all good. Tim needs a big picture to showcase his talent, and I'm intensely curious to see what he'll do with one of my favorite stories.
