I was just browsing around the IMDb and found my way to Doug Jones' page. We all know Doug Jones, he's Abe Sapien and Silver Surfer and the Faun in Pan's Labyrinth. I saw a Silver Surfer movie in the "announced" section so I decided to click the link.

I was instantly surprised and delighted to see that J. Micheal Straczynski is writing it and, more importantly, they're trying to get Alex Proyas to direct. Alex Proyas is a great director and I've liked everything that I have seen of his work. (Including I, Robot, which a lot of people seem to be down on for some reason.) His sense of style and direction would complement the Silver Surfer perfectly, so I hope to see this project get off the ground. (And let's face it, no matter who directed it, it couldn't be worse than the crap Tim Story pulled with Galactus and the Surfer.)

Interesting sidenote: when I saw this, the first person I called was Swank-mo-tron to tell him, you know since he's such an Alex Proyas nerd.  His response?  "Man, that'll be Norrin Radd....  Get it?"

What a lame-o-tron.  He's a few servos short of a robotic porcupine...
