The continued transition of the Chronicles of Narnia book series to the big screen seemed in doubt lately as Disney gave up the films last month, citing budget issues. But now we’re hearing that 20th Century Fox has snapped up the fantasy franchise with an eye toward releasing The Voyage of the Dawn Treader in 2010.
What book series — fantasy or otherwise — would you like to see transferred to film?
I’m awaiting the day when Lois McMaster Bujold’s science fiction series about Miles Vorkosigan [Amazon U.S.] [Amazon U.K.], official, gentleman, and imperial troubleshooter, makes it to a visual medium. Though any of the books on their own would be better suited to a big, chunky TV miniseries rather than a two-hour theatrical film. Think Battlestar Galactica meets Aliens… without the aliens. And Jamie Bamber would be perfect as Miles.
