From BoingBoing:

There’s a feature film being made out of Jumper, one of the best science fiction adventure novels I’ve ever read. Jumper is a textbook example of how to do sf adventure right: get a great conceit (a kid can teleport to any place he can visualize), work out some of the science implications (going from sealevel to a mountaintop can blow out your eardrums), the social implications (live in NYC, but jump to Disney World every morning to get a couple rides in before the crowds get thick), and the family implications (what would you do to your abusive alky dad if you were a 17-year-old teleport runaway?) — throw it all together with one of the most memorable characters this side of Daniel Pinkwater, and you’ve got a fantastic novel.

Please, Hollywood, I know you and I don’t get along, but I’d consider it a personal favor if you could make the film version not suck!
