Movie Option Expires

Bad news, folks. Despite the best of efforts, C-Squared was unable to find backing for a Nightrunner project. I am, of course, disappointed, but this is a common outcome for these things. That doesn't mean there may not be another try in the future, but for now, Alec and Seregil remain on the page.

Bah. :( This makes me sad, though it also means the boys get to live in my imagination instead of being dictated by film.

Hm... not quite sure whether to be happy or sad.

As I realized with other movie adaptions (LoTR, for example), I prefer the movies in my own head to the ones that are actually produced for the big screen... Then again, it *would* have been nice to see Alec and Seregil in "real life". Sort of...

Oh well... you never know whether the *next* try won't end up being *much* better in execution than the first one... ^^

I'm curious to know, for future reference, what exactly is involving in optioning a piece of fiction for film purposes?

Short answer: you go to the author's agent and she brokers the deal. ;-)

There are option fees and contracts for x amount of time. An option gives a producer or screenwriter or whatever a limited exclusive option to come up with a script and find backing.

Did they look into getting funded through Kickstarter?

Awww, too bad. Hopefully soon!

Speaking of a Nightrunner film - I'm not sure if you've seen the BBC's updated version of Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock (2010), which just aired as part of PBS's Masterpiece Mystery series in the US? It struck me that the actor playing Sherlock Holmes, Benedict Cumberbatch, might make a good Seregil *points to icon*. Though I guess he may be a bit too tall and lanky. For more pics, I can recommend cumberbatchfans. :)

I LOVE the new Sherlock series! I had reservations on the updating, but they did a brilliant job of capturing the characters. I really like Watson in this version, who often gets short shrift. i thought the same aobut Benedict. Lanky is good and height can be dealt with in film magic.

Tough luck, but that's showbiz! One of my friends is going into film as her major, so maybe in a few years when she graduates and has some connections there'll be an option again!

And somewhat off-topic, but your panel at Yaoicon was amazing, thank you so much for coming and reading to us! It was one of the highlights of my weekend. ♥

I totally enjoyed Yaoi Con and you folks were a terrific audience! Wish we hadn't run out of books. I had no idea so many people would show up!

Ah man. ;_; I was really hoping it would happen too. Well, at least we still will always have them in the books, and you never know what the future might hold! =)

Man, that is the most depressing thing I've read for weeks. =| Sorry about it. But at least you can keep writing! And the future is full of opportunities, right? I'll keep my fingers crossed for better luck in the future.

Sadness. But, well, maybe the time wasn't right. Meanwhile we still have Casket of Souls to look forward to!

Speaking of actors/Seregil, I'm just gonna throw this out there: Matt Bomer.

Any thoughts?

Seregil or, with a bit of scruff, Thero.

Urgh, not good news. At least they gave it a try, though, which might make others interested in such a project. And hey, future books will still happen, which is good. ♥

Aww, that is really too bad. I was quite looking forward to seeing Alec and Seregil brought to life! If things haven't changed by the time I'm out of film school, I might just have to see what I can do to make this happen.
