Source: Warner Bros’ New Franchise Play: ‘Dragonriders of Pern’ Book Series
The original Harry Potter series of books is over. The final Hobbit movie comes out this December. What's next? What can Warner Bros mine for more material? DC superheroes? Bwhahahaha! (just kidding but DC heroes beyond Batman and Superman are having a more difficult time launching in the movies). Well, Warner Bros exect Drew Crevello may have the answer, the popular science-fiction/fantasy book series The Dragonriders of Pern.
The book series, created by Anne McCaffrey, tells the tale of the Pernese riders and the intelligent dragons they ride to fight the voracious Thread. The series is comprised of some 20+ novels so sequel material will be abundant.
No real details of the deal (eg. movie development plans, release dates, etc) were disclosed other than the optioning of the series from the Anne McCaffrey estate (the writer passed away in 2011).
