FILM: Isaac Asimov's "Foundation"

Isaac Asimov's futuristic sci-fi epic Foundation is being adapted into a film. The story follows a society that can predict the future using what they refer to as psychohistory. They set up a "foundation devoted to scientific research to protect itself and ensure its survival. The politically inflected work, which features such characters as the prophetic Hari Seldon and a villain called the Mule, spans hundreds of years, essentially tracking the rise and fall of civilizations." The books may be turned into a trilogy if the first film does well. It sounds like it'll need big names or amazing graphics to attract an audience.
