Ugh, I hope they don't set it in the US either. In my head, when I'm reading.... everyone has British accents LOL Taking it out of London would totally ruin it for me :( I'm a little skeptical about a Nightside movie no matter what... I just don't believe any studio could do the books justice.


Agreed. I do not have much faith in any studio doing Simon's books justice. Either the budget would be too small, or casting completely wrong etc I like the idea of a tv series, but again, a lower budget perhaps and as Steve mentions.......Dresden Files anyone??? Didnt do the books justice in the slightest. I guess we'll just have to wait and see, perhaps im being unreasonably negative, but i couldnt stand to see the books ruined by some awful adaptation, movie or tv.

A BBC series, made by the creators of "Dr. Who" will be cool!

I think the Nightside series would work well as an Anime. If only because without heavy CGI and makeup, there is just no way they can fit any of it into a reasonable budget.

If they did manage to, the CGI would just be too jarring and break from the immersion. At least with an Anime you everything is equally realistic. Thats not to say you can't make a live action movie out of the series, but you'd need a big hollywood budget for just one fight scene.

Anime would work better for the "Deathstalker" series, IMO.

There was a second inquiry about the rights on Monday...

I'll let you all know if anything comes of it. . .

I wouldn't hold your breath.

Celtic Rose has the rights for 6 years and they couldn't find anyone that wanted to make it !

I think the problem is that it is similar to The Dresden Files, Angel, Blood Ties and other 'supernatural P.I.' television series.

Regardless of individual merit, none of these did very well (Angel would have been unlikely to have even been commissioned had Buffy not been out beforehand.)

As such, film/TV production companies are going to be wary about investing in something that can be shown to have a high risk on fiscal return. (It's not like they are going to read the novels, is it?)

All very true.

Although, the guy at Celtic Rose did read the books and paid out his own pocket to have some stunning concept art work drawn up.

Deadboy was spot on as were the Harrowing.

What it needs his to get a 'name' attached. If some A or B list actor was to read a book and like it, the money would suddenly appear.

Any idea how you'd go about getting some famous actor to read Simon's books?

Any idea who?
