This looks pretty crazy and interesting:

There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard.

Will watch the trailer later, but one thing I noticed is that, according to IMDb, this movie is already in post production and has a december 2018 release date. An entire year seems like an unusually lengthy post production. And it doesnít seem like the type of movie thatíll make a long festival run before hitting regular theaters.

Watched the trailer. "London." Mobile cities? Like a crazier Howl's Moving Castle. I'm... interested.

Just to clarify Peter Jackson isn't directing this movie, he's writing the screenplay and producing it. A full year of post-production is not very unusual at all. This is the period where editing is being done and VFX shots are being completed. It's also the period where they'll have reshoots or pickup shots if needed. Not out of the ordinary.

Isn't post production alot about CGI because i'm assuming the movie is very much a CGI fest which is very time consuming.

Looks interesting. Is this taken from a book series or anything?

Apparently it is - and the premise sounds pretty damn interesting to me.

That sounds fully bonkers! A steampunk version of London rolling around on giant wheels. What was the author smoking?  :lol

I must make a point of getting those books.

Same. That's a concept that genuinely intrigues me. After I'm done with Stormlight I'm making a point to check it out.
