Raimi to direct Pratchett's Wee Free Men

All the dirt. All the top secret stuff. Anything that has to do with the process of getting us to sit and watch something projected on the big screen.

The plot of this story is ludicrously dumb. Is this really any good? I mean, wtf?!?/

This is brilliant news! When I read the article the scene from army of darkness where Bruce is attacked by scores of tiny copies of himself flashed to mind. THATS how a Nac Mac Feegle attack should look like! I hope he casts Bruce Campbell as all the Feegles.

This is a fantastic book. A great choice for Prachett's first live action adaptation. Plus Raimi of course

I just read it this year for the first time, it's a good stand alone discworld story. Complete with foul mouthed, rude guesturing, whiskey drinking, minature blue scotmen.

Plus the second half of the book really has a great "otherworld" type sequence.

This movie will really stand apart. I'm not a guy who likes the sappy stuff, but the way the ending comes together with metaphor is very cool.

Plus the fact that the girl in the book finds the Wee Free men in her dollhouse, trashing the furiture and moselting the dolls.
