Do you know if there are any hopes – no matter how small – of someone making another one of Sutcliff’s books into a movie?
The earliest stage, with absolutely no guarantee that a film will emerge, is that an option (“to acquire the rights”) is taken by a would-be film-maker. And there can be years – a decade or more – sometimes , between a first option and then a film actually being made, if at all. There are one or two options currently in force, but as far as I can foresee at the moment I think it will be a good while before we see the next film.
