Good news for fans of Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller series. The once worrisome Fox TV adaptation of the bestselling fantasy series is no more. The option with the studio has lapsed, putting the franchise back on the market where it was reportedly in high demand with a number of studios at Comic-Con this past weekend.
This is great news in my opinion. The TV adaptation of this series always troubled me. It most likely wasn’t destined to get the budget and treatment Game of Thrones enjoyed on HBO and this is a series that always seemed better suited for film, where it likely would get the time, care and cast it deserves. Here’s to hoping that when the dust settles on the bidding war over the rights, it lands with a studio that is interested in making a quality product and not just a well timed cash grab with the release of the final book ‘The Doors of Stone.’
