The film rights to the book series were optioned in 2007 by Warner Brothers. Dan Farah of Farah Films & Management brought the project into the studio and will produce. The studio is out to directors and plans to be in production by end of 2008.
A search of Dan Farah revealed that he was working on the Elfstones of Shannara.
Does anyone else have any more information on this because I'm really confused as to why he would be starting in the middle of the series.
