Uff. I don't know how to take this one. Rothfuss seems like a trustful person, but for now, the idea doesn't convice me too much... We'll have to see!Walter said:http://blog.patrickrothfuss.com/2015/10/hollywood-news/
The Kingkiller Chronicle series, by Patrick Rothfuss, is going to become a TV series, with a movie and video game deal in the package.
I like the books -- don't love them. They're more interesting to me than any other current fantasy novels. But the prospect of turning any book I like into a movie fills me with dread. Yet the author (of course, the man who stands to benefit from the venture being a success) sounds optimistic, and gave them a hard sell (of course he would!). So.. I dunno, maybe?
Regarding the topic of adaptations, I feel the same as you. But, it's what cinema has become nowadays (with few exceptions): a world of remakes, sequels and best sellers' adaptations.
