Just got The long war and have ordered his 40th. and have just wishlisted many many Diaries etc on Amazon. Now I want movies. I have the 3. Which I thought were quite good.

Google suggested these future projects:

Planned and speculated
The Wee Free Men: the BBC reports that Sam Raimi is going to direct it.
Troll Bridge is planned by Snowgum Films and will begin in earnest very soon, following a successful Kickstarter campaign to raise money from fans.
Unseen Academicals: airing in 2012
Sourcery: Terry Pratchett has stated that Sourcery will be the fifth discworld novel to be adapted for Sky One, although he initially wanted to adapt Making Money. However, he thinks it may work better as a film and he can have fun with characters like *Nijel the Destroyer.
The Watch crime series. Prime Focus Productions are going to produce a crime-a-week drama set in Ankh-Morpork.

I noticed that "Unseen Academicals" was due in 2012...Hmm

Does anyone know of anything which might be released soon? :-)

The BBC is so slow in releasing their works in any way outside of Britain, especially the popular stuff. I tend to blame central government administration when I get frustrated. Youtube usually gives you the first breakthrough- which can be roughly yanked if the BBC disapproves. You can't even purchase some years old material tied up in exclusive contracts or not.

I had heard of Unseen Academicals airing in 2013, didn't happen but surely they're working on this title? Didn't Pratchett start up his own studio for these works?
I'm sure there's more to come but who knows... I'm just grateful Pratchett is still prolifically weaving his stories.
