Topic: Status update on the Warner Bros film option for Forge of God and Anvil of Stars

Hello Mr. Bear

I realize you are probably asked this question often...however, in reviewing your Blog, it looks like this was last discussed in the Summer.

I was hoping you might provide something of an status update on where things stand in bringing "Forge of God" and "Anvil of Stars" to Film.

Does Warner Bros still own the option/rights? Is there a certain time period in which it will expire if they do not act upon their option?

These are two of my favorite SF novels, and I would love to see these developed for the big screen (hopefully by a great Director)

Cheers,
John

Warner has let the option lapse, but that is no real sign that the project is dead. They still own the Ken Nolan screenplay, a very desirable property, and that has now become part of a negotiation with another major production company. The Writer's Guild strike has also slowed a lot of development talk in Los Angeles. As I've said before, sometimes these projects take a decade or more to get going.
