Whoa, great idea! I quite liked the novel, although it's a long time since I've read it. Burton would be just perfect for the job.
I heard there are plans of turning the Hyperion Cantos
into a movie. Now this is one of my favorite SF series, but somehow I think it wouldn't translate to film too well. But then again I always thought the same thing of Lord of the Rings
, so I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt.
Supposedly Scorsese has already signed on for directing it. No problems there. Unfortunately Leonardo DiCaprio seems to be the prime choice for playing Raoul Endymion, which would be a complete miscast IMHO.
