Meanwhile, MGM has apparently announced an intention to film some of Bradbury's oldest stories. His 2002 novel From the Dust Returned is a composite novel, stitched together from numerous short stories about an odd fantasy family. You know them: Cecy, Uncle Einar and their relatives. The MGM announcement is all over the web. Here's one account of it. In mentioning this, I also have to issue that standard warning: just because someone says they're making a film, don't assume they will ever ACTUALLY make it. We're still waiting for Fahrenheit 451 and The Illustrated Man - other major Bradbury works which have been announced in recent years, but which are still lost somewhere in "development hell".
