Default The Wheel of Time to be turned into a movie

When the Lord of the Rings movies were released a few years ago Iíd hoped that it would spawn a wave of adult-oriented fantasy movies. Sadly, most of the fantasy movies that came out since then (Harry Potter, The Spiderwick Chronicles, The Golden Compass, Eragon, The Chronicles of Narnia, etc.) were weak adaptations catering for younger viewers.

That trend might change, though. Universal Pictures acquired the rights to Robert Jordanís Wheel of Time series last year in a seven-figure deal, and they plan to adapt the first book in the series, The Eye of the World, to a movie format soon. The Eye of the World movie will be produced in part by Rick Selvage and Larry Mondragon of Red Eagle Entertainment, the company that published graphic novel versions of the books.

I welcome anything to fill the void, I did not get the whole Golden Compass movie.

Can A Song of Ice and Fire be far behind?

Edit: Nevermind, I see HBO has already started adapting it for TV.

I know, I'm late to the party. I just wanted to point out that Uwe Boll is currently available, and I feel he would be a most excellent choice to direct a Wheel Of Time movie.

I'm not too hopeful we are after all talking about Hollywood unless they get visionary directors like Nolan or Spielberg.
