    So, I know there hasn't been any news on this series being made into a film and it would be very hard to do anyway, to be hoenst. But would anyone besides me love to see the attempt made?

    I figure it would need to be a trilogy and a few bits may need to be cut out. Perhaps Kvothe's dealings with Auri. It'd be a shame to remove those scenes but they could work around them if time wouldn't allow for the scenes to be included.

    I’m interested in this, but I’m not sure if Raimi is the right one to handle the tone.

    To be honest though, I’m not big on making a film of these novels. To date, most agree LOTR is the best novel to film adaptation out there. But LOTR is just over 1000pages total, split into three 3 hour films. And even then some complained about what was left out.

    The KKC books are 700 and 1100 pages respectively. The second book is about the same length as the entire LOTR tale, and we’re going to squeeze that into a 2 hour film? 3 hours if we’re lucky?

    I just don’t see that as being a good option, especially when shows like GOT and Outlander have proven that short series can adapt the complexities of long novels much more effectively. I would prefer the Kvothe story be the one that’s adaptated as a series.
