    Raimi Options Goodkind's Sword of Truth

    "Spider-Man" franchise director Sam Raimi and his producing partner Joshua Donen have optioned rights for Terry Goodkind's bestselling "Sword of Truth" adventure series, published by Tor Books.

    Having been approached by Hollywood a number of times over the past decade, Goodkind was never convinced that his 400,000 word novels could be successfully compressed into worthwhile feature films. In a meeting at the author's home, the renowned director and producer instead conceived of a groundbreaking mini-series. Within two hours Goodkind was sold on the concept and negotiations commenced. Ten months later the deal was finally concluded.

    "It's a dream come true to work with someone of such remarkable vision, talent, and ability," Goodkind said. "Given Sam's sincere love for these stories and his determination to only make great films, this mini-series will be a watershed event."

    All of Goodkind's novels have been international bestsellers. Translated into 20 foreign languages, there are over 10 million copies in print. The "Sword of Truth" series began with "Wizard's First Rule" in 1994. The 10th novel in the series, "Phantom," is on sale now. The 11th and final volume is under contract and will be published in 2008.

    Raimi and Donen hope to begin production of the opening mini-series, "Wizard's First Rule," within the next year, to be followed by ensuing volumes of the epic novels. The development process will begin while Raimi completes Spider Man3.



    When I first heard about this, I was really excited but since then, having had time to think about it, I am worried it will be totally messed up. The characters are so beautiful and noble etc, they may be extremely unrealistic to portray in a TV series. There are already some cheesey parts in the books, which may be excruciating to watch on TV. I'll keep an open mind until I actually see it, but my instinct is telling me to fear for the worst.(

    If they can pull it off, it'd be awesome! I hope it comes to one of the channels I have!
