An Hour With Harriet

2012-04-30: I had the great pleasure of speaking with Harriet McDougal Rigney about her life. She's an amazing talent and person and it will take you less than an hour to agree.

And honestly, I'd rather see it not being done at all than done bad, if those are the option.

And I just realized something: if they want it to be the next Game of Thrones, they'll have to wait for the original to be over, first...

Good or bad, popular might mean enough money for a remake in our lifetime. That time around they might fix things that the first was criticised on. Not quite up to my usual standards of cynicism I know, but this sort of thing has happened before.

Another rumor in the rumor mill, from this post which laughably used my rumor-mongering as a source. In the comments:

IF they are going to make it as a tv series I think it's wise to take your time with it and hammer out most of the things that may be difficult to do. Planning how to tackle them right instead of plodding along and adress the problems of this production as they pop up along the way.

I'm sure this is the one project where you want to have thought it through a couple of times before starting mayor production.

Well in that case I was talking about the dude who made the comment. I think I am pretty dependable but there's a difference between me being knowledgeable and me talking out of my ass.

...still nothing.

I've been checking every now and then for news. But the lack of an announcement of the studio name is fairly ominous. It is a year yet when they first announced the right were sold to a "large studio"?

Then just do like the rest of us and ignore it until there is news. Watched pot never boils and all that jazz.

Finally! Just saw this at TOR:
Quote:
"The wait is officially over! We are happy to announce that HBO has purchased the rights to Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time fantasy series. Filming will reportedly begin in early Spring of 2018, with the first season starting a year later in Spring 2019. While few details about the crew have been released so far, we can confirm that Brandon Sanderson has agreed to help with the project in some capacity, rumored to be dialogue writing. But it's the cast list that really has us excited here at TOR. We'll have to wait a while for the full list to get leaked, but as of now we know of five beloved characters that have already been cast. Moiraine will reportedly be played by Rosanne Barr, while her counterpart Lan will be played by John Goodman april fools. Thom Merriln will be played by a presumably aged-up Adam Sandler, and Andy Serkis will play Padan Fain as a motion capture, CGI figure. And Keith Richards will make a cameo appearance as Aginor. Well, that's all we know for now, but it's certainly enough to get us licking our chops and smoothing our skirts in anticipation! Keep checking in, as more details are sure to flood in in the coming weeks."

That does not inspire confidence. Hopefully Red Eagle is kept as far away as possible.

So did Harriet get the rights back from the people that made that awful, tremendously terrible 10-ish minute video thing? Or what?

Well, let's hope something comes of it, at least. Maybe they're giving out more details at Jordancon? If anyone's interested, this guy is apparently the writer/showrunner.

Nope, Red Eagle is the knuckle-dragging outfit that blessed us with the zany "Winter's Dragon."

Sony managed to fuck up Spider Man, repeatedly.

What could possibly go wrong?

This would probably work best as an Amazon show or a Netflix show...I wonder who they'll try to get to pick it up...network wise that is.

Wrong Sony. You're thinking of the parent Sony Pictures, which makes movies. Sony Pictures Television makes TV shows. Like Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. In the Spec. Fic. genre, they've made Outlander, and are making the Dark Tower TV show.

All said, I don't think WoT could have landed a better production house. Now if only Netflix or Amazon pick up the option...
