Hi Todd, I heard there was a dragon Rider movie coming out soon. How can this be? I thought only you and your sister had permission to write about perm? Do you have any say in what the movie is about? I thought I read in one of your mom’s acknowledgements that she didn’t want a pern movie done? Or was it that the script she saw at the time was too terrible too allow?
‘Soon’ is a relative term. The Dragonriders of Pern® has been under option on and off for over 30 years now.
Currently it is under option with Warner Brothers. Warner Brothers so far has not asked me (or my sister) for any input. I understand (through the news) that they have hired a person to write the first draft screenplay.
With regards to Mum’s Will, she was referring to writing more novels, not screenplays.
Mum was referring to a particular script, I believe.
