Bradbury's "Sound Of Thunder" To Film, Ben Kingsley May Star


Ben Kingsley is in final negotiations to star in Franchise Pictures'
big-screen adaptation of Ray Bradbury's short story "A Sound of Thunder"
for director Peter Hyams. Edward Burns and Catherine McCormack also star
in the film, which begins shooting next month.  "Thunder" is about a game
hunter (Burns) who goes on a time-traveling safari -- owned and operated
by Kingsley's character -- to hunt dinosaurs in the prehistoric era. When
he kills a butterfly, he unknowingly sets off a chain reaction that will
erase humanity from existence. A team of experts must return back in time
and replace the butterfly.
