Jeg var inde på Julie Kagawas blog for mindre end fem minutter siden, og fandt den mest fantastiske pressemeddelelse:
New York, NY, October 2, 2013—New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Julie Kagawa today unveiled TALON, her new highly anticipated series from Harlequin TEEN. The Young Adult series, which has already been picked up by Universal Pictures, features dragons battling an ancient order of dragon slayers in a contemporary setting. TALON, the first book in the similarly named series, will be published on October 28, 2014.
The series revolves around dragons with the ability to disguise themselves as humans and an order of warriors sworn to eradicate them. The dragons of TALON and the Order of St. George have been at war with each other for centuries. The fabled creatures, whose existence is unknown by the general public, are determined to rule the world. Their foes, a legendary society of dragon slayers, are equally bent on driving the fabled beasts into extinction. However, when a young dragon and a hardened slayer unknowingly befriend each other, it has severe repercussions for both organizations.
OMG! DRAGER! Squeeeeeal! Jeg elsker drager, drager er episke og fantastiske og herreseje. Det lyder som alle tiders serie! Og endnu bedre:
Universal Pictures has picked up the film rights to TALON with Chris Morgan attached to produce. Morgan is the writer of the studio’s Fast & Furious franchise and the upcoming Keanu Reeves samurai movie, 47 Ronin, as well as the producer of the recently announced The Legend of Conan film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Jeps, filmrettighederne er allerede blevet købt. Også på tide nogen laver en ordentlig film om drager methinks. Exciting!
