Sam Raimi to Direct Adaptation of The Kingkiller Chronicle

Posted on: February 2nd, 2018

Fans of Sam Raimi will be glad to learn that he will be directing his first film since 2013’s Oz the Great and the Powerful; which wasn’t anything to be excited about. Now, Raimi has signed on to direct an adaptation of The Kingkiller Chronicle, a series of fantasy novels written by Patrick Rothfuss.

The novels follow Kvothe, an adventurer-musician and spans two time periods with the past and present. There are currently two novels in the series – The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear – with the third novel perhaps arriving in 2019.

It was previously announced that a TV series based on the novels was in development, but it is not clear how that series and this upcoming film will co-exist. Details are sparse, but the news that such an exciting director is at the helm of the film is surely something to celebrate.
