Entertainment industry stalkers I need your assistance.

So my favorite book series is being made into a movie. The book The Eye of the World is the first book and movie. It's being produced by Red Eagle entertainment which is CEOd by Rick Selvage and Larry Mondragon. As far as I can tell they have no experience in Hollywood and they are EX IBM execs.

see if you guys can find anything else.

here's info for anyone interested about the books

Yeah I know about it being 2011 at this point I'm trying to find out where the hell these producers came from and find out if they have a history of fucking up movies.

how in the fuck are they going to do this when robert jordan is deader than a doornail? I guess just make the first one and stop. If it does well there will be sequels though and that dope jordan kicked the bucket before he could finish that rambling clusterfuck. I loved those books but by about 5 books in it was clear he'd gotten full of himself and decided to go all tolkien on us and stretch them out into oblivion. At least LOTR had an ending. Jordan just started rambling and added shit-tons of characters.

i wonder if i should move this to the geek forum. It's safe to say that if you read these books you're a geek.

Things did drag after book 6 if you didn't read book 6 you missed out on a lot. Book 9 was really good as well.

Book 12 is being finished by brandon sanderson one of the authors RJ narrowed it down to before he died. His wife made the final selection. Brandon was left with notes and audio tapes to finish the book which is the final in the series.

IDK I think the Harry potter crowd would like these if they are looking to get into something adult.

things pick back up again in 11 most of min's viewings get fullfilled and they only briefly dwell on Elayne trying to win the throne (god that shit is boring)

got to disagree with you about book 6 though that was the one where he was imprisoned in the chest and he broke free stilling aes sedai right and left and the Asha'man made the meat grinder with the one power.

yeppers that was the end of book 6. you'll probably enjoy book 11 not his best work but better then 7 8 10. Did you read the prequel?

and did you know that the 12th book is being split into 3 books because it's going to be around 900000 words due to all the plot lines jordan left open.
