How often do you hear science fiction fans wish that Hollywood would adapt a proven science fiction story rather than turn out a garbage original? Well, now fans can claim a small victory over the unending Hollywood churn machine.

20th Century Fox is adapting Isaac Asimov’s classic science fiction mystery The Caves of Steel. You remember this one, this is the one that introduced New York City police detective Elijah Baley and his robot partner R. Daneel Olivaw (he of the positronic brain) as they set out to solve the crime of a murdered Spacer.

I’m kinda looking forward to this one. I do have fond memories of Caves of Steel, as dryly written as it is. And this could be the start of a new series that dives not only into Asimov’s robot novels and stories, but also the Foundation stories that he later tied into the same timeline.
