It's been a while since we heard anything about this one, but Deadline Hollywood have reported that producers Hunt Lowry and Mark Johnson (Chronicles of Narnia) have patterned with Myst's rights holders to develop the successful adventure game series into a feature film.
"Our aim with this project is to stretch the genres it operated within, much like the source material did," Vanderbosch said. "It is such an innovative property and by utilizing the novels as our primary resource, we have the opportunity to offer audiences the essence of MYST without being limited only to the famous island of the first game. Our focus has always been on creating an entirely new visual experience driven by engaging characters and an epic narrative."
We're not sure what to make of this one yet, as there's currently no script or even a writer attached. Regardless, it will be interesting to see what they put together for this one.

1993's Myst does remain as "the best selling adventure game of all time", not that that is all that significant anymore given the fading of the genre over the last decade though.

Those who played the more recent iPhone port of Myst may have noticed that although the mythology of the game hold up ok, much of it's execution is a little cheesy by today's standards. Is there enough substance there for an entire film (or more)?

Yeah, there's definitely enough there for a movie.

The first game only really touches the surface of the back story about a civilisation that have the ability to write entire worlds into existence, think Stargate but with books. The later games fleshes the back story out a little I think.
The accompanying novels written by Rand & Robyn Miller in the early 90's complemented the games really well but copies of them are hard to find these days.

I would have liked to see Nolan or someone like Guillermo Del Toro get their hands on Myst and do something really cool and twisted and mind bending with it. These narnia guys are probably just going to boil it down into generic fantasy fare.

So they want me to pay to go and see a movie about a game that when you play it is like an interactive movie.

So remind me why I would want to see this movie when I can just play the game?

Hahaha Slaps.
People use to say the exact opposite of me when I played RPG's back in the day.

"You're basically just playing a movie, so why dont you just go watch a movie?"

Also, some people, shock horror, don't like playing games, but happily go pay for a movie.

Why play an RPG when you can LARP?
