Discussing film adaptations of His Dark Materials:

MJ: Has there been any interest in making another go at it?
PP: I’m quite tempted by the idea of doing it as a 24-part TV series like Game of Thrones. It doesn’t need the scale of the movie screen, it needs the length of a TV series.

This would make me deliriously happy. With an HBO production they wouldn’t need to downplay the controversial aspects of the book. They cold deal seriously with the themes of the text.
