And for what it's worth, I have no idea how they could have made that book into a viable movie. It's all over the place. I said this the last time a thread popped up for the first trailer, but I think this book would've been better served by an episodic TV series with various directors, and enough money thrown at it to jump locations. The only people who probably could've pulled it off was HBO, and I'd guess it'd been more expensive than Game of Thrones even.
havent read the book, but couldn't they have filmed it like Crash or Babel?
