But what this post is about is progress on the Mistborn Movie front! Since Brandon announced the movie deal a number of years ago, there has been very little mention of this, or of the studio, Paloppa Pictures. Brandon said today that they have been sending him drafts of the screenplay as it comes along. The most recent draft has Brandon "extremely excited." He says that it has a nice balance of staying true to the spirit of the book, while being able to be made into a movie.
Now that they're more or less satisfied with the screenplay, they are now working on finding a studio that would like to produce it. So if you know someone in the business, go ahead and give Brandon an email.
But something that has me way excited is the trailor that they released for the movie. It's not a "trailer" trailer, it's just a clip of a bunch of different movies that helps capture the spirit of the film. But man, it's awesome.
In other news, Peter has given a recent update on Big Books (as in not YA or novellas):
"Next book should come out October/November 2013. Then probably another one a year later. Then in 2015, an Elantris sequel. Then two more Stormlight Archive books. Then the second Mistborn trilogy. Then five more Stormlight Archive books. Assuming Brandon doesn't change his mind. "
Brandon is also having a Q&A of sorts on Google+. Submit a question, and upvote ones that you want askedhere. It'll be on Hangout at about 11:00pm EST on April 17th.
