another epic novel coming to the silver screen

Kit informed me that one of my favorite books, The Lions of Al-Rassan is on its way to being filmed, according to this news release from the Official Guy Gavriel Kay Website.

If they do this well, I hope the movie’s success will spark (renewed?) interest in Kay’s books, as film versions of Lord of the Rings and the Harry Potter series seem to have done.

Such untertakings may have sparked another fantasy-novel-turned-film. The first book of Philip Pulman’s His Dark Materials is slated to be put to screen by New Line Cinema, the company responsible for the movie trilogy Lord of the Rings.
