Nifty.

Now let's start theorizing who's gonna play in it!! :D

I nominate vin diesel to play Vin, on the grounds that his name fits, and it's funny (note that vin will remain female).

Edit: also, i vaguely remember this being talked about somewheres before. Wasn't this mentioned somewhere before, or was it all just theoryland around here?

I freaking <3 Vin Diesel. =D

Well there's the fact that Vin was originally a boy, so that could work.

The movie option has been mentioned before, but not with any specifics.

So are they still at the option stage or are they actually making plans to go ahead with the movie?

I agree with BS that is more important to have a group that understands the book than a typical Hollywood deal. What I've never understood is why they would pay a lot of money for the movie rights to a book then change the whole thing up until it is virtually indistinguishable from the book.  Really hope this is more in the Lord of the Rings vein where basically an unknown did great things.

I hope whoever does it, does not get a HUGE budget. Don't wanna turn this into a CG fest. Mistborn could be kept down to earth when being made. Look at what they can do with Wire-Fu which could be used quite well.

Vin Diesel would make a great Lord Ruler. As for the rest of the cast...well, I'm bad at these games, so I'll leave it to others.

This is an option. It is not guaranteed to be made into a movie. Wheel of Time has been optioned before and the books were not made into a movie. Stephen Kings Dark Tower was optioned with a big name director who just quit the project. Dianna Gabaldon said in one of her podcasts that she has been paid $250,000 for options and no movie got made.

I tried to google this Pallopa pictures. They don't even have a website. It sounds like some new company. I really have no idea how development companies work. Do they write the script and then try to sell it to a studio? Does anyone know? My understanding is that this process typically takes several years even if a movie gets made. It can be 2 years just for script revisions. Brad Pitts company has the option on World War Z and if you look at the film for it on wikipedia it has been in revision for something like 2 years with no end in site.

Does anyone know more about how the movie business works and what this development company does. Do they just do the script and then sell it to a studio?

That does strike me as odd. i did an extensive search on Pallopa, and i came up with nothing. although i doubt anything will go wrong, i do worry that this is some lame, fake deal with Brandon. that would just make more heatbreak for us all... anyway i think the movie would be great.

If we are doing suggestions for vin, i think Summer Glau from Firefly and Serenity would make an amazing vin, but thats just my opinion
thank goodness for sharpie's

I too would love to see Summer Glau (the ultimate cute waif of butt-kickery) as Vin.  I can't imagine anyone else as Vin.
