    I'm sure they'll never do anything from the Silmarillion, but I'd personally like to see the story of Turin on the big screen.

    DEFINITELY NOT

    For one, movie-making tends to ruin a wonderful story. The Silmarrillon is a tale of such wonder and passionate beauty the big screen would be an insult.

    For two, I don't think Tolkien intended LOTR to be a film, nor the the hobbit, and though I support both of these, I think recreating The Silmarrillon would utterly ruin its name as a classic tale to a classic film.

    I think it should. but ONLY if they get it like the book. If they can't... well... don't do it.. :|

    I don't think they could do all the Silmarillion in a movie. It's simply WAY too big to be carted over to the big screen.

    I'm for the idea of a TV mini-series.

    Nah, i don't think it would work that way. It'd need a huge budget and I don't think a mini-series would provide the kind of cash they need.

    I agree, while a mini series setting would be the most efficient way to convey the story, I don't think the budget would be large enough to do it justice. :(

    I know...we just need a big-budgeted one. But who would do such a thing? :(

    I agree that the Silmarilloin would make a awsome movie but I think that only people who have read the Sil book would really understand it because of how its like a lot of different stories that some how all connect together..........but there is the movie coming out made by die hard Tolkien fans which if u watch the trailers u will notice a decent amount of simalarites between this and the Sil http://www.ancanar.com/

    I am pretty sure the people at Ancanar purposely made the film around The Silmarillion.
