    Interview: Feb 20th, 2015

    Question

    Did I read that they were going to make a movie out of Mistborn?

    Brandon Sanderson

    The question is-- Somebody bought the rights. The question is whether they are actually going to use them for anything, and that I canít say. I really like the people who have them.

    Question

    Would you be involved in it if--

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes. I would be involved.

    Question

    How much?

    Brandon Sanderson

    The contracts say I have to be able to go to the set at any time.

    Question

    You wouldnít be helping writing the screenplay?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Oh I donít write screenplays, itís a different skill. I think you do an expert do what an expert does. But so far they have sent me all of the stuff theyíve done and Iíve given feedback and theyíve taken it. Itís a good sign.

    Question

    In your opinion what percent--

    Brandon Sanderson

    How close?

    Question

    --that they are going to start it.

    Brandon Sanderson

    15?

    Question

    That small?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Thatís high. I think thatís very high for this business. My agent says one out of 30 gets made.

    Question

    So whatís the criteria they would--

    Brandon Sanderson

    Investors, if there are people who are willing to give us a 100 million dollarsÖ So if you happen to know anyone willing to sink a 100 million dollars into a film we could do it tomorrow.

    Interview: Nov 22nd, 2016

    BYU Bookstore (Paraphrased)

    Question

    Regarding the movie options:

    Brandon Sanderson

    Sanderson has high hopes, and will try to get a PG-13 rating as much as he can (because we all know it's not going to be PG.) If the movies are bad, they'll pull more people into the Sanderson craziness and we'll have more people to complain with.

    Interview: Dec 3rd, 2016

    PatrickDiomedes

    I just remembered that someone asked about the whole movie deal thing, and Brandon gave a more thorough explanation.

    Brandon Sanderson

    What happened is that DMG, which is a chinese company, came to him first about the Emperor's Soul, because they wanted to make stuff that has more asian characters and they wanted to do it in hollywood because Hollywood's seriously lacking in representation of asians. So he sold that to them first, and then they called him back a couple months later asking about the entire cosmere. At that time, Mistborn was still optioned by another group, but brandon sold all the other stuff, and they started on Way of Kings right away, and then as soon as Mistborn became available they bought that up so that they had the entire cosmere. And he said that Way of Kings is ahead right now, but Mistborn will likely be first, because it'll be easier to produce and stuff.
