Hey, all you Ranger's Apprentice fans! Good news - the first book is going to be made into a movie! Check out the news bulletin below:
"The feature film rights to Australian author John Flanagan's young adult action/fantasy book series Ranger's Apprentice has been optioned by United Artists according to the LA Times . Published in the US by Philomel , a unit of Penguin Young Readers Group, the Ranger's Apprentice series (seven books so far, with an eighth in the works and a ninth promised) follows the adventures of 15-year-old Will, an orphan living in medieval times, who joins a group called the Ranger Corps, where he trains to be the King's eyes and ears."
The script hasn't even been written yet, so don't look for this one in 2008. But how exciting can this be?
And who's up for a trip to Australia? They already have seven books in the series?! We in the US have to wait until March to get the fourth book, called "The Battle for Skandia" and shown here. But you can bet it will be here on the Zion library shelves just as soon as it comes out!
