Stephen Donaldson's fantasy book series THE CHRONICLES OF THOMAS COVENANT
is on its way to becoming a movie franchise. Revelstone Entertainment has bought the film rights to the first six books in the CHRONICLES
series and has hired screenwriter John Orloff (BAND OF BROTHERS
) to adapt the first novel. As well, Mark Gordon is onboard as a producer for the film.
Donaldson's uncoventional fantasy series followed the story of a ill writer from our world that is mysteriously transported to a world where magic exists. Believing that he's hallucinating and that the people in this "Land" are just figments of his fevered imagination, Covenant performs some actions that have long-term effects on his psyche. Eventually he comes to accept the strangeness of his situation and his role as a mythic hero to its people.A new COVENANT book
, the first in a new series, was published in October of this year.Got a scoop? Know something that you need to tell us about? Send it to us!
