I wouldn't expect a sudden surge in visible progress. They still have to finish the script (or at least get it approved), get the official "green light", finish casting, etc. From the hints we've gotten these are underway, but they have to be finished before production can start. That's not to minimize the significance of this though.
I'm hopeful that the start of filming date of March 2010
will work out so we can start finding out more.
