WeiryWriter posted a article in Brandon and Book NewsDeadline has recently reported that the Mistborn: The Final Empire film, being produced by DMG, now has a scriptwriter attached. The scriptwriter's name is F. Scott Frazier, and he's only written a few films so far, although in addition to Mistborn he has been tapped to write two more scripts for other companies. I would like to remind everyone that just because it has a script writer does not mean that a film will definitely go forward. Also, do give Frazier a chance, he may be early in his career, but everyone has to start somewhere. Hopefully he ends up wowing us a fantastic adaptation. In other news, we have new cover art for Snapshot, Brandon's new novella coming out February 17th (which, in case you missed has just been optioned for film by MGM) and for Dreamer, a short story originally published in the Games Creatures Play anthology edited by Charlaine Harris. The artist Howard Lyon has posted them on his twitter, and I really must say he did a great job: The Amazon page for Snapshot also includes a new blurb, which sheds new light on the plot of the novella:
Chaos posted a article in Brandon and Book NewsCrafty Games has revealed what the first supplement to the Mistborn Adventure Game will be: Terris: Wrought of Copper. We at 17th Shard had thought its next supplement would be an Alloy of Law-era one, but this is not the case. That doesn't mean we aren't excited--to the contrary! Crafty Games has worked with Brandon to develop material that provides a detailed look at the Terris Dominance and its people, which is definitely not something we saw much of in the original trilogy. Other than that, details on the supplement are scarce, but Crafty Games will be having three Google+ Hangouts where they will reveal more, and the first one is actually tomorrow: will be an overview discussing "what players, Narrators and fans can expect to find in this book." will discuss the Rules as well as "all-new insights into the awesome power of Feruchemy." will discuss "adventuring in the Terris Dominance."We'll keep you posted on what is revealed at these Hangouts, so stay tuned, but definitely go watch them if you have time! In unrelated Mistborn news, the film rights to Mistborn have lapsed last week. Paloppa Pictures had owned the rights, and Brandon says they were wonderful to work with. In fact, news on the Mistborn film over the years had been immensely positive, with Brandon saying he liked Paloppa's progress and their screenplay a lot. However, they were unable to get the film into motion. As such, Paloppa's rights have lapsed, so theoretically, they could be sold to someone else. It's sad we can't see Paloppa's good vision for Mistborn on the big screen, but with the rights available again, we could see a production actually start eventually. On Brandon's blog, he says any offer for the Mistborn film rights would need to be "very serious" in order for them to consider it. But, you know, if your uncle is J.J. Abrams or something and you love Mistborn, get your people to contact Joel Gotler at Intellectual Property Group. Wow. That sounded way too official for 17th Shard...
