Cinemascope » Ari Folman looks into a future past “Bashir”

.... Folman has previously disclosed his intention on diving back into animation and named the adaptation of Stanisław Lem’s 1971 novel The Futurological Congress as his next project.

Color me very sold. Lem is of course one of my favorite authors, period, so any chance to get more of his work to the screen is welcome. Solaris was filmed not just once but twice (the two versions make for a great double feature if you're extremely patient), but my longstanding favorite of his, not yet filmed, would be either Memoirs Found in a Bathtub (a great meditation on how information might survive a coming catastrophe) or The Star Diaries — the latter of which, due to its episodic nature, would work better as a TV series.
