All in all, I hope this movie turns out well and get as much support as possible. The books are amazing. Finger cross that this franchise reboot would be as successful as The Lord of the Rings. The stories, after all, are classic and are beloved by the masses around the world. Hopefully Mr. Mark Gordon would get this going on the right track. I can't wait to hear more news.
P.S. Congrats to the book-based movies that were nominated for the Academy Award 2016: The Martian (YEAH!!!!!), Room, and The Revenant.
