Dragonriders of Pern flying to the big screen?

With the success of Game of Thrones, the fantasy genre is having a boom. Terry Brooks' Shannara  has been given the nod by MTV and Anne McCaffrey’s "Dragonriders of Pern" is in the works by Warner Bros. As a fan of the dragonriders, I am thrilled with the idea of seeing Pern on the big screen.

From the Weyr and from the Bowl,
Bronze and brown and blue and green,
Rise the dragonmen on Pern,
Aloft, on wing, seen, then unseen.
