The first book in Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series is on it’s way to becoming a movie. Film rights were recently bought by Universal, and the film will be made in partnership with Red Eagle Entertainment.
Universal Pictures has acquired film rights to the late Robert Jordan’s bestselling “The Wheel of Time” novel series in a seven-figure deal.
Adaptations of the fantasy tomes will begin with the first book in the cycle, “The Eye of the World.” Rick Selvage and Larry Mondragon will produce for Red Eagle Entertainment, which published graphic novel adaptations of Jordan’s books. (Source: Dragonmount)
The movie is in what would be considered pre-production. There hasn’t been any casting, and there almost certainly isn’t a finished script. There is an IMDB profile up for the movie, but there is no information listed as of yet, save for a 2011 release date, which may or may not be accurate.
