The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''
Extract of the Dreamflesh article ''Path of The Sacred Clown''

I am sure you could make a decent movie out of that story. The story has it all (well, what Hollywood likes) - a big challenge, a plucky young woman, commercial rivals, traitors, love. Hollywood would probably also want a crew member who is a failure but becomes a secondary hero (and possibly have his own subplot/rivalry), and they might want to remove the pregnancy aspect. Hollywood would probably also make it a modern story unfortunately.

Sorontar,
who is not saying any of his perceptions of how Hollywood would adapt the story is appropriate, but acknowledges that Hollywood has a biased view of society.

 It's a wonderful story of feminine courage and skill. It would though be reduced to tale a rebellious girl side kick playing for the romantic attentions of a swashbuckling  fellow seeking redemption for past acts of infamy.
