|As long as Clive's around,none of that will EVER happen !!!!!! Mr Cussler would rather be dragged over broken glass then allow a Dirk Pitt TV show !!|

| A Dirk Pitt adventure T.V. Show. That would be cool. Bring it on.
Wouldn't you watch a DP mini- series. Erik?

|I never watch mini-series on TV. However, I am much more likely to get hooked on a season long TV drama or something along the vein of LOST or 24.|

|They did a terrible job on "It" but I don't think it was one of his better books either. Just my thought. There have been others that worked out very well. Only time will tell the future of Dirk and company on the silver screen.|

Let's not forget how bad they botched Stephen King's book "It", what a waste of mini-series time. That is just my 2 cents.

| Well,the idea of a mini-series is fine,but you will run into the same problems. The cost for such an undertaking will still be enormous,especially if it is a long one. The set pieces for the action sequences are VERY costly and you can't avoid them in order to tell the story. They are adventures,after all,with action. And not just typical action,either. Mr. Cussler loves to put an interesting spin on his chase scenes. It would be better for character development, no doubt.
But unless the two are finely balanced,can you really tell a Cussler story properly??
The most important part will be--who will do it?? Any Dirk Pitt,Kurt Austen,or Oregon Files project
all have the stigma of the Cussler factor. No one is going to touch a Cussler story or even think about it until this current mess is cleared up. The ramifacations of this lawsuit are going to be felt for years to come and will greatly affect anyone's interest in thinking that they are the ones who can satisfy Mr Cussler.

| I think the idea of a mini-series is excellent and one I never would have thought of.One reason I think it would work is because the Dirk Pitt novels are so long and with a mini-series, time would not be a serious issue.
The thing I like most about mini-series is that they allow for much more character development, something most movies skimp on becuase of the timeframe they typically stick to.
Great idea, Loren.

|Thank You Rob, Maybe Movies for the big screen are not the way Dr. Cussler's books can be presented in their best light. Stephen King has had many movies done in Mini-Series format for television. Even in my opionon "The Stand" as his best work didn't follow the book but was done as close as it could be and turned out an excllent story. The cost basis and time restrictions may not be as restricting in this format. Just my 2cents.|
