Dragonriders of Pern Movie Coming Soon
Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern was one of my all time favorite series as a teen. The series spanned over 20 books and stretched my imagination. I often used the series as inspiration for my various role playing games and have always wondered if they would ever make a movie. Now a movie appears to be in the stars.
Warner Bros. has bought the rights and options to all 22 books. This means we may finally get the movie we have been waiting for. Deadline reports the Dragonriders deal, saying that exec Drew Crevello, who worked on the X-Files and X-Men series, is behind the deal.
These fantastic novels should have been transitioned to film a long time ago but with current FX technology, I suspect the film will be incredible. I am hopeful that they will use the success of the Marvel Comics franchise as a model and create a series of film and television shows. This way they could truly explore the magnificent world that Anne McCaffrey gave us.
If you are unfortunate enough to have never read the Dragonriders of Pern then I strongly suggest that you check it out. It is one of the most incredible adventures that touches on politics, intrigue, adventure, romance, scifi, fantasy, and war. I fell in love reading these books and I am sure that you will too.
