Well, it's a shame, but on the other hand, until we get "our casting director" (Rob) on the job, probably just as well.
We've had our toad for the 2020s, it's got to get better from here!
But do beware the toad burps.

They may only do a movie BASED on Mercy's world....not following one or more books exactly, but taking elements from one or more books and basically making a new/newish story......sort of like what they did in making the Dresden TV Series - the show had the basic elements of the books, but didn't actually follow any of Butcher's stories

I think they should make a show like they did for Trueblood. Each season is one book.

I think the books would transfer better with a show/series than movies. There is more scope to explore the world and the characters. Sad to see it wasn't greenlit but you never know what may happen in the future - crossing fingers although I hope it gets picked up by people who GET the books and do it justice rather than a slap dash adaptation.

Coincidental timing for this thread to perk up.   Patty's agent just wrote, and says she wants to talk with Patty tomorrow, that apparently Cam has had several meetings with a studio and things may be getting serious.  Of course, we've heard this kind of stuff before, so it's hard to get too excited.  In Hollywood, the deal's not done until after the movie is shown.  Still, after months of absolutely nothing, it's nice to get a nibble.

Not merely in the can, but shown, as he says.  Fingers crossed!

Sigh.  The nibble has turned into several weeks where Mr. Edsel Murphy has been working serious overtime to derail absolutely everything.  The poor guy putting this together has has family deaths, personal trials, and a comedy of errors that beggars the imagination.  What's more, the folks who nibbled are having the same sort of luck.  Either we've offended the fates, or they're just in the mood for a comedy.

Wow, that's a rough road.  I hope things clear up for his sake, not just because I'd like to see Mercy & Co. on the screen (large or small).
