I'd really like to see the sf work of Edgar Rice Burroughs (i.e., John Carter of Mars, Carson of Venus), E.E. Smith (despite what Harlan "don't you DARE film any story I've written" Ellison thinks!), A.E. van Vogt, Isaac Asimov (yeah, where are the filmed versions of his work? Yes, I know Fantastic Voyage was his, but the screen version of Nightfall was disappointing), Larry Niven, C.S. Lewis, Clifford Simek, Harry Harrison, James Blish (he did plenty more than Star Trek), etc., etc., etc., Etc., ETC! Starship Troopers should be the thin end of the wedge in hopes of a science fiction film renaissance.
