Pastwatch == good movie?

so, I just got around to reading Pastwatch, and I think it would make a FANTASTIC movie. Also, it further elevated my opinion OSC as essentially the only sci-fi author I've read who knows how to the subject of religion without it sounding preachy (from either side of the discussion)

I think Pratchett handles religion quite well, as evidenced by Nation, but OSC is quite good at it too.
Pastwatch has filmic potential, but too complex for a two hour film. Substantially condensed it would be possible.
If you liked that book, look for 1491 which is a nonfiction study of what the Americas were like pre-columbus, it's an astounding, eye opening book.
