One of my favorite books of all time is Neil Gaiman's Stardust. It's a beautiful fairy tale with one of the most haunting endings you've ever read.
I was excited, then, to read that there's a film adaptation in the works. But, uh, Claire Danes as Yvaine? Ugh. And the De Niro character is nowhere in the book and sounds absolutely awful. Pajiba voices concerns about the writer, as well.
*sigh* I suppose it's just going to be another Hollywood hack job of a great book.
