As I watched the concert film and thought back to reading the book I couldn't help but imagine a full length movie of the sci-fi steampunk story being made. The story is about a young man who, just like everyone else, has a decided future, or at least a future that is "normal" and "simple". No dreaming of being a rock star or an actor, designer or chef.
The man takes a leap of faith and hops on a fast moving train to find out that the rest of the world isn't quite like his home. He takes a fantastical adventure filled with circus folk, a watchmaker, a anti-establishment terrorist, and the backdrop that only sci-fi can deliver.
I want to start a campaign right now. Let's get RUSH to produce a feature length film of their latest brilliance. Let's get JJ Abrahms on board to make it shine. Let's have the music all be RUSH, past or present or even new songs. They never have really done a soundtrack before, might be interesting. (Although Alex Lifeson did record the theme to the ill fated "Andromeda".)
