Sam Raimi in Talks to Direct 'Kingkiller Chronicles'”

Maybe! Variety reports that the Spider-Man and Evil Dead director is now in negotiations to helm Lionsgate's ambitious adaptation of the Pat Rothfuss book series The Kingkiller Chronicle. This is part of a multiplatform deal that will develop Rothfuss' book series for film, television, and video games.

It's one of a number of projects Raimi is eyeing as his next film including Bermuda Triangle for Skydance, but it's obvious that the once-prolific filmmaker wants to get back behind the camera soon. However, Miranda and Rothfuss have expressed mutual admiration. Should Raimi officially join the project, he'll be working alongside Miranda, the Pulitzer Prize-winning mastermind behind Hamilton. This is a grand cross-medium venture, so having a name like Raimi on the film would be incredibly exciting, and sell horror nerds like myself on a ticket. The film adaptation will be written by Lindsey Beer, who has worked on upcoming movies Chaos Walking and Godzilla vs. Kong. Miranda will compose original music and songs for the franchise, and also has an option for future stage adaptations.

Set in the world of the wildly popular fantasy series by Rothfuss, The Kingkiller Chronicle will follow a pair of wandering performers on their adventures through the unique and startling world of Temerant, immersing audiences in a universe of unexpected heroes, mystical places, and terrifying dark forces. He spends time in the land of the Fae. His skills and talents developed so well that he was admitted into an educational institution known simply as "The University". And that's just the beginning.
