The Crapularity Is Nigh
io9 (wearing its fun sf-fandom hat rather than its dumb futurology fandom hat) reports that "Ed Solomon, the screenwriter who co-wrote the Bill & Ted movies… and penned Men in Black, will be rewriting the… script" for a Will Smith vehicle based on one of my favorite films -- also, by the way, one of my favorite films to teach -- Colossus: The Forbin Project. I can hear it now: "The Willennium will be a fact as I get jiggy with more and more machines devoted to the wider fields of truth and knowledge." I have a bad feeling about this.
