  1. Hello Sanderson community! I'm new to the forum and not sure where this post belongs.. so I'll just put it out there. Mistborn is destined for the screen. I know it. You know it. The creator himself knows it. From the interviews I've seen, Sanderson seems to want a live action movie adaptation. This has always made me rather nervous (the world can't take another Eragon). The recent Dune movie has restored my faith in Hollywood's ability to produce a decent sci-fi novel adaptation, but nonetheless I think Mistborn should be made into an animated series. Ever since watching the stunning 'Arcane: League of Legends' this past November I've been hooked on the idea. I'm not sure why but while watching the first episode I just kept thinking to myself, "Mistborn should be done this way." I wasn't even reading or keeping up with anything from Sanderson at the time. The animation style just had such a Mistborn feel to it. I saw a blurb from an interview in December where someone actually brought up Arcane's success as a possible argument for an animated Mistborn. Sanderson seemed open minded, but again stressed that he still preferred the idea of a live action adaptation. This made me sad. The animation studio that did Arcane is called Fortiche, they are based in France. I want to reach out to them. See if any of them are Sanderson fans. I think one scene with Vin and Kelsier soaring around Luthadel, or maybe a little inquistor action, would be enough to convince anyone this idea has merit. If there is much interest I'll certainly post more of my argument. Just wanted to get this out there for now, see if other people have had the same thought. Please let me know what you think and what you have heard! Like I said I'm new to the forum, so maybe this is already a debated topic. Thanks for reading!
  2. I don't mean for the title of this post to come across too strongly, but I just don't get all the excitement about Sanderson's books being potentially made into movies. Far more often than not, I hate it when great books get made into movies. You've all heard the phrase, "Yeah, but the book was waaaay better," after watching a movie, right? Well, how much moreso will that be the case for some of the best books around? Off the top of my head, I can think of the following list of movies which were, in my opinion, better than their corresponding books: - The Shawshank Redemption That's it. That's the list. People who make big-budget movies don't "do" story-telling anymore, and certainly not epic tales. They make movies where people blow things up, stitched together with a superficial plot structure. And if there's one thing that Brandon Sanderson is an expert at, it's telling an epic story. Even a story that he admittedly wrote with a movie in mind, Steelheart, wouldn't be the same on the big screen. Some of the best laughs I got from that book were from David's horribawful metaphors, and I just don't think that would translate well on-screen. They'd go over about as well as gasoline on a waffle. The only way to do "epic" story-telling nowadays is with a TV series, but would you trust any company with, for example, the Mistborn epic story? I generally consider HBO the best at telling stories on TV currently, but they'd have to "HBO it up" by giving Kelsier some love scenes with some noble he actually ended up brutally murdering in Luthadel and by having things like one of Vin's crews stealing from a few dozen naked men & women in a brothel. And let's not even get into where they would put certain hemalurgic spikes. I mean, heck, they somehow made the Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire series even more graphically violent and sex-filled than the books, and I wouldn't have thought that was possible. I guess I'm just jaded on the whole movie and TV industry. The most recent prime example of this phenomenon came with the Ender's Game movie. OSC fans had waited 30 years for a movie version of that book to get made, and Card even (eventually) got a deal where he could have some measure of editorial control over the product. And even though they bent over backwards to try to keep the movie relatively close to the book, it still ended pretty badly. I mean, the movie wasn't horrible, but so much of the nuance and soul of the two books (Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow) were lost. Even if they wanted to make a sequel after the movie flopped at the box office, they had changed so much about the Enderverse world that the sequels would practically be impossible to pull off with a straight face. Don't clamor for a movie about your favorite Brandon Sanderson book to get made. Enjoy the visuals and the world that you create in your imagination based on the vivid descriptions Brandon gives us in the books! That's the best possible movie (to me, at least).
