I was interested to note that my site received a hit from the Google search "his dark materials film lyra casting". So I looked through the other results and found some news regarding the books. Apparently there is a film version in the works, but not much has been done other than the hiring of Tom Stoppard to work on a script (which sounds like a brilliant decision to me). Philip Pullman seems to have very little involvement in the project, and has stated his "take the money and run" attitude towards it on many occasions. I also found a great interview with him that took place right before The Amber Spyglass was published. The second half was fascinating to me, as Pullman explains why Lyra's world is different and where he got certain ideas for the books. Interesting reading if you liked the series...
