This is one book that I couldn't see Hollywood doing justice to. The trailer doesn't really leave me feeling any better about it. Lots of nice effects, but I think it's going to come out all bubble-gum.

I agree. This looks like it changes the entire feel that OSC was trying to convey. I wonder if he decided he needed the money...

But to start a project without any notion of a deadline is a sure fire way to never release anything. I believe that projects like this require a "happy medium".

Come up with a list of features to implement, estimate those features (and those features only), design, implement, test, release with re-assessments (and iterations) happening throughout the entire life-cycle of the project, adjusting estimates as necessary.

At some point the companies need to publish a release date to the public. That should be somewhere near the end of the project, assuming the re-assessments warrant it.

Do NOT allow new features. Period.
