from the item on Digital Media Wire: "CNBC reported that Warner Bros paid a little over $1 million for the movie rights, a fair price according to industry analysts. No release date for the film has been set."
Apparently, the movie has already grossed $3 billion, but no one is sure how they did it. Time Warner stock has soared on the news, which represent record revenue for a theatrical project in pre-production. Sources inside Warner Bros. declined to discuss the particulars of the project, stating simply, "We're just really, really good at this business."
