New "Foundation" Could Suffer From Rot

If you had any issues with I, Robot's faithfulness to the source material, you might want to brace yourself. Ousted New Line Cinema Founders Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne want to produce (and maybe direct) a movie of Isaac Asimov's Foundation trilogy, under their own Unique Features banner. But don't worry, they have a grounding in science fiction: Shaye directed last year's The Last Mimzy, which critics described as being like E.T., only more "nauseatingly sweet," and geared towards stoners.
