Eon Movie

Posted by Scott on 08/08/2017

Is there a possibility of Eon becoming a movie? One of best science fiction books I ever read.

Thanks, Scott. Possibility, yes, but nothing serious yet underway--except for the efforts of a hardworking agent!

Hi There Having just re-read EON I've pushed Stephen Baxter's Voyage back to 2nd place. Your story would make a great film but who should Pavel Mirsky be played by??

Some great Slavic actor, obviously! Any ideas?

For me, as appealing as an Eon movie would initially appear, I'd be terrified about what would have to be cut out in order to fit it into a 2->2.5 hour timeframe. Personally, I'd much rather see it adapted into a 6-8 part Netflix (or similar) TV series with each episode being an hour. That way, it could be much truer to the book.

That would work fine---though we shouldn't limit ourselves to Netflix, as fine as that would be!

dear Greg, I agree with Scott the EON-series being the best SF I have ever read, I too would welcome a descent series on Netflix. Thanks for your writing skills!!

It seems unanimous from previous posts that Eon represents our top-shelf sci-fi to date, and I couldn’t agree more. It’s right up there with Dune. I just hope it doesn’t land in the hands of David Lynch, as much as I love him as a director; he just isn’t fit for sci-fi. Moreover, despite his nationality, I think Michael Pena would make a magnificent Mirsky. I hope very much that we’ll see Eon on the big (or small) screen one day, no doubt it would be a massive blockbuster! Thank you Mr. Bear!

I like both Lynch and (with some caveats) DUNE, but those years will never return! Thanks for the support!

Please do not allow them to make EON on the small screen - it should be large screen (ie Cinema size) to do the novels justice. I have a vision in my head of seeing tThistledown and the Way in either 70mm (best) or Imax - the casting choices would be very very interesting to see - especially Olmy

Most new movies today are projected at 4K on big theater screens... but 8K is coming along! 70mm is more of a pipe dream unless you're Christopher Nolan... But who knows?

Hello. I just came upon this thread. I am a huge fan of EON. Is there any news on its potential to come to the big or small screen?

None yet! Thanks for your interest, Patrick.
