I've read and heard rumors of a nightside movie that is possibly in the works. I was wondering if you could possible confirm or deny these rumors thank you.

Take a look here viewtopic.php?f=32&t=42

Celtic Rose have bought the option, but (as anyone that knows anything about the movie industry),knows, that means nothing.

I know their working on proposal for the studio's as they keep asking Simon for info on plot lines ect. I've seen some concept art work and it's very, very good.

It may may be a matter of getting a 'name' attached, but who knows. . .

They have the option until (I think) some time next year.

I am not that familiar with British cinema since I live in the United States. However, I can honestly say that it could only be an asset to British cinema to proceed with a movie based on the Nightside. But I do not want to see some screenwriter's interpretation of same. I am sure we would all like to see a book followed as closely as possible. I realize that some things are not easily rendered to the screen but the attempt should be made. Also if you're going to start somewhere, start at the beginning. :D

If only it were as simple as that.

As all things, its down to money.

If a studio wants it and wants it set in the US than it'll be set in the US.

When an author sells the option they loss just about all control (unless their at the level of Stephen King, no not always then).

It would be great to see it made in the UK and shot here.

Book one would be the right place to start, but some of the other books have more visual and action packed plots which is what their looking at now.

I'll post any info that comes through but nothings happened for a while now. . .

SET IN THE US!!!! That would be a travesty! Honestly!! The very idea makes me want to vomit! How could the Nightside be the Nightside unless it were the "secret dark heart of London"? I mean, really?!?

I agree.

Simon has written (but I can't remember which book) that there are other cities which have a Nightside. But that's not the point, is it. . .

The Nightside couldnt possibly be set in the US!!! Although it would be typical of a movie adaptation to completely ruin a book. Lets hope this isnt the case....

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.

As much as I would love to see the series come to life on the big screen, all I can think is Eragon. Why not a TV series or even a cartoon series.

Which is the problem of selling a story to Hollywood.

A TV series could end up like The Dresden Files. Would anyone want to see Nightside Lite?

I can't see a cartoon working, but you never know I suppose...

In the end, it's like any series that you love, it'll never be as good on the screen as in your head. Your mind has an unlimited budget unlike film and TV :D
