That's why we want that image to be real so badly. The idea of a television or film based on the Eve universe is so compelling, for us such a 'duh', that we are willing to suspend our own disbelief. It should be happening. Heck, it should have already happened. Why is this not happening?

No one wishes Baltasar Kormákur and Ridley Scott success in bringing Eve to life more than I do. I hope they manage to succeed. The news about the development has been out for a number of years now and Sir Ridley is notorious for having a full development slate of projects that never come to fruition, not as bad as Del Toro, but close. To me it seems like the perfect project to develop a trailer, or short film around first. Not only to drive interest, but also to shop around to investors. So it makes you wonder why this hasn't happened yet. I have no inside knowledge and perhaps they are moving forward in a different direction. I hope that is the case and this isn't something that is going to languish in development hell for years to come.
If they are looking for ideas to get started, I know this guy with a million of them. He's cheap. He already belongs to the WGA and he even plays Eve. >cough<
(Actually my membership to the WGA isn't current, but that could be fixed easily enough.)
