Shannara in Development!

Man, Warner Bros. is on a roll… THE DARK KNIGHT… MAN OF STEEL… TEEN TITANS… THUNDERCATS… and now comes word that they’ve picked up the rights to Terry Brooks’ classic SHANNARA novels. Whoa!

Now, its always surprised me that after LORD OF THE RINGS’ blockbuster success, more sword and sorceror epics didn’t get added to the pipeline. SHANNARA is an obvious choice to capitalize on that eager market.

I read the first few books as a kid and LOVED them… I’m not really crazy about WB skipping the first book, SWORD OF SHANNARA, but they are all basically stand-alone stories, and you COULD do a prequel down the road I guess…
