This one has only just found this community, but someone's heart would be porai to find that it had been abandoned!

Seriously, though, I loved the books and am excited about the movie. I do have some fears about what they might do to it, but not all film adaptations are bad and I can't wait to hear more about the project. I had read that Brad Pitt was involved in this whole thing and that he might even be playing Sandoz (with modification of the character, obviously). I read this on Maria Doria Russell's website, but that was quite a long time ago now. Not sure what's changed since then. Would love to hear any newer info that anyone has.

Sipaj! Someone is very happy that you have found this community!

I hadn't heard anythng about Brad Pitt's involvement, but last I checked they had been talking to Antonio Banderas ... but that was years ago. It may be that they've put the project on hiatus for a few years, maybe to figure out the logistics of making the movie, or to give MDR time to work on her new book ... I don't know.

Sparrow Movie Website

Here is a link to the movie website, which I've just rediscovered. It was last updated in July of 2004. Love the icon, by the way.
