Did I miss some part of the story here where we actually have reason to think this is going to be a high quality thing?  I still picture it on the level of Shannara, the cast consisting of teenage underpants models and the whole thing coming off as an extended advertisement for perfume and hair products.

It’ll be a bunch of young nobodies put together with one well known has-been B lister or something.  Introducing Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio as Moraine, or some shit like that.

Of all the various high fantasy series, I’ve always felt WoT was one of the best.  It has excellent world building and an overall fun narrative/story for the first half.  You could absolutly adapt it into a great TV show.

Now, as for the odds of that happening, yeah, very little hope.  It would require a lot more effort and passion than I expect the people being hired to make this have.  But since I loved the series in my youth, will be fun to follow along to see how it turns out.

Also, if you were actually paying attention, you’d see the very first post was about them announcing Rosamund Pike as Moraine.  :p

Hey, I never said I was paying attention.

And while familiar, I can’t say I can figure out where I have seen here before, so there is that.  B lister indeed.

Anyway, if they put quality people in charge and give it a big ass budget, it could work out.  Guessing they will do neither of those things.

She was the evil “Bond Girl” in the one with Halle Berry as the not-evil one.

I knew her from Gone Girl and World's End. I'm not sure what constitutes A list or B list, but she's a fairly big name. Certainly far beyond anyone they got for Shannara.

You were right to spoil that. I hope I never have to see that again.

I mean, Shannara had motherfucking Crixus.  Who is admittedly a B lister at best, but fairly recognizable?  I don’t know, I am just blowing shit out of my ass anyway and this is destined to suck.

Unless it doesn’t suck, in which case I want to also formally predict that it will be amazing.  That way my bases are covered.
