Yeah, That Might've Had Something To Do With It

The Tolkien Estate has settled with New Line Cinema regarding unpaid royalties. Beyond insane is this quote from the statement of Alan Horn, Warner Bros. president and CEO:
We deeply value the contributions of the Tolkien novels to the success of our films....
Gee, good to know that you deeply value the contributions of the fucking novels you adapted, without which your movies wouldn't exist.

Which fantasy epics would you like to see properly adapted? I'm for The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander, The Sharing Knife by Lois McMaster Bujold, The Stepsister Scheme by jimhines, Temeraire by naominovik, and Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King.
