His Dark Materials: another blockbuster fantasy adaptation I won’t end up seeing

Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy is poised to become the next wildly popular fantasy film franchise, following the example of the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings adaptations:

In London, the National has staged a lavishly ambitious, sold-out, $1.4 million, two-part, six-hour adaptation. And New Line Cinema, which released the “Lord of the Rings” mega-movies, has bought the rights to Mr. Pullman’s trilogy and hired Tom Stoppard to write the screenplay.
