That looks remarkably cool. I wonder if a movie of Moby Dick could really do the book justice?
My hope would be that space whales would be different enough to not be too bogged down, enough room to be faithful without being slavish.
There's a film coming out at the end of this year: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_the_..._the_Sea_(film
About a whalers ship being sunk by a whale. If it does well, imagine some studios will start thinking about a Moby Dick film, to cash in on the name.
