Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonrider stories may finally reach the big screen now that Warner Bros. has optioned the film rights for the 22-book series.
The first book was published in 1968, and the focus is on an elite group of warriors who take to the skies on the backs of giant, fire-breathing dragons with telepathic powers.
Reportedly behind the deal is Warner production executive Drew Crevello, who came to the studio from Fox two months ago.
It has been three years since the last major announcement about the series’ movie prospects, when a scriptwriter was named for a Copperheart Studios production.
