Seems universal has bought the rights  :o ;D >:( ???

I dont know whether too laugh or cry.

this could be good (fairly low chance of that), or most likely, it will make james rigney turn in his grave :\

Didn't NBC already aquire some sort of miniseries rights almost a decade ago?  Or some studio like that.

I wouldn't hold my breath that anything will actually come of this.  Let alone anything watchable...

I didn't know of that?

I know theyre making sword of truth into a tv-series though o_O

I just shudder to think what ONE movie will be able to do with the eye of the world. I mean, lotr as a book isnt that much bigger, and that was turned into 12 hours total if you went with extended. . . and they still lacked half the plot :P

Death in a fire!

Bringing this subject up again has made me feel even more contempt than usual for movies. Keep up the good work!

what? oh bloody hell! why can't they just burn robert jordan at the stake using all known copies of those infernal books as kindling and just let the thing fade into nothing like the big crock of lotr-rip-off it is?! bah! it'll be about as useful and entertaining as Dungeons and Dragons.

i now realise he's already dead... so just burning his books would be enough.

One day, when he was naughty. Mr Bunnsy looked over the hedge into Farmer Fred's field and it was full of fresh green lettuces. Mr Bunnsy, however, was not full of lettuces. This did not seem fair.

i read through to somewhere in book 3 or 4.. can't even remember now. by that point my brain was numb and i couldn't think why i was wasting my time anymore. WoT is just not my thing. i can enjoy tolkien and lewis and some others but need to see something different when i read. this is where i detoured to pratchett. while i enjoy fantasy when done right, it's not my preferred genre at all and i take it with a grain of salt.

Not in that order. ;)

This so ain't happening unless they suddenly find a way to make 13 movies at the price of a one movie.

I hope amazon does a good job with the series.   At least it appears there will be a decent budget.

With a bit luck it might get the forum going for another 10 years.
Though I get the feeling I'll soon have to start reqruiting on my own. ;-)

Does anyone else love that this thread started almost exactly 10 years ago? Awesome.
It'd be really funny if we went to Erins wedding.
Drank all the alcohol.
Insulted flunji's "New Zealand" family
And then sailed off into the sunset.
Probably to ingapore, whoich isn;t really the sunset
oh.
Hello flunji!
