The other part is screaming, "NO! IT WILL BE NOTHING LIKE THE BOOK. I do not recall a flying ship."
But, I will give it the benefit of the doubt. New interpretations are always exciting, and some of them are pretty damn good. Plus, this is coming from the guy who gave us Resident Evil, so we'll see where it goes.
I wonder, if this does well, would there be a second installment concerning a certain man in an iron mask? Maybe musketeers will become the new cool, just like pirates did in 2003?
