Category Archives: Big Frakking Deal
Yesterday, author David Weber posted an essay on his website, davidweber.net, announcing that a movie option deal had been made with a Hollywood studio to adapt his popular Honor Harrington series for the big screen. Weber stated that the movie, to be based on the first book in the series, On Basilisk Station, would the first of possible series films that would follow the storyline of the books.
Although Weber did not disclose names, dates, or financial details, his announcement was very detailed and enthusiastic. Weber stated that the producer and the studio are the same entity, and he described the movie studio as “a cutting edge CGI/3-D studio… headed by people who have actually read the books, who like the characters, who know the characters, and who have [illustrated] their understanding of Honor’s character and the reason they’re excited about the project.” More importantly, Weber stated, the studio is “interested in the Honorverse and in the characters who live in it, and they clearly don’t see it as the opportunity to make one movie and then get out.”
