just being curious again...

recent googling does not show any news nor discussions
no official statement from Cyan since July 2012 afaik
even Delve Films removed their BOT page since I don't know when
official blog & facebook page & IMDB page, are like they never exist

in other words, did I miss anything?

It's dead, Jim.

Take a look at this more promising news and discussion instead about Cyan's deal with Legendary "to create a TV series based on Myst:"

No, no, it's restin'! Beautiful plumage, Squire!

But seriously, folks: I wonder when/if we're going to get another update on this project.

To which 'this' do you refer? As JW Platt says, the Myst movie plans are history now but an update on the proposed Legendary series would be welcome.

Right, when I said "never" I was referring to the movie. When it comes to expensive business deals, there's generally no reason to ever announce a failure or a project being shelved. (Except as part of an unavoidably public disaster, such as company bankruptcy or layoffs.)

As for the TV show, usually the first news you hear after "it's in development" is "it's been greenlighted". (That is, real live money has been committed to start production.) In between there's nothing to announce; it's all in negotiation.

lol, thanks for the info. now i'm thinking about the bright side, imo MFG's death actually prevented Myst to be made into another Hollywood low-budget garbage from coming out.

Turns out that's not quite true. :) Today's news:

http://deadline.com/2015/05/myst-tv-ser ... 201421271/

Quote:
Hulu has landed Myst, a drama series based on the classic 1990s video game, with a script-to-series commitment. [...] The pitch was taken out, garnering interest from multiple buyers before landing at Hulu, which commissioned a script which, upon approval, would trigger a straight to series order.


(Hat tip for Alahmnat for seeing the headline go by this evening...)

"Script-to-series commitment" means that money is not committed, but if Hulu likes the script, they'll buy a whole season (rather than just a pilot episode).

There doesn't seem to be any information about the script. The article fuzzily implies that it's about the origin of Myst island, but that looks like guesswork to me, and even if accurate it doesn't pin much down.

Apparently the scriptwriter is Evan Daugherty, best known for... the screenplay of _Snow White and the Huntsman_? Well, that was a *memorable* movie, if not exactly a good one. :)

Apparently the initial script Evan wrote was pretty good, then the studio got its hands on it and then it became not so good.

Personally I'll remain skeptical about all this until I'm watching/done watching it.

After decades of efforts, Myst TV live-action show to debut on Hulu

WOW!!! :shock: :shock: :shock: Thanks for posting the link for all to share in the good news, Chloe. Made my day!
Great news for all entire communities revolving around Cyan games and I'm so glad to read about the quality "players" in the entertainment business joining Cyan and their involvement with Legendary's project.

Gonna hafta get that $8 HULU subscription someday soon I guess as I'm sure the Myst programming won't be free like a lot of HULU content used to be.
Still, $8 isn't that much for HULU content and coupled with the $8 Netflix streaming fee if one has cut cord, like me, with the many headed, outrageously priced cable / satellite services. :evil:

I'm sure there will be a "way" for all our peeps outside of the US to enjoy what hopefully is coming down the road. It would be very unfair to deny access for so many. Where there's a will, there will be a way. :wink:
