Yup, what happened to it?
As of 7 January 2008, United Artists has optioned the film rights for The Ruins of Gorlan and is in talks with Oscar-winning filmmaker Paul Haggis to adapt and direct the movie. (He directed million-dollar-baby and Crash) This is what John Flanagan first heard the news he said:
It’s just so overwhelming to see that the Ranger’s series is set to head off in yet another exciting direction. When I think how this all started as a series of twenty short stories written for my son Michael, it sets my head spinning to think there’s the distinct possibility that it will now be translated into movies and seen by millions of people around the world.
Apparently the film has been delayed due to funding issues. It’s been four years, dudes, still no movie. Meanwhile, we’ll have to make do with fantasizing about the actors. Will- Logan Lerman. Cassandra- Emma Watson. (I hate Alyss. Here are some reasons why, if you’re interested.)
