Mistborn Movie Trailer
Brandon Sanderson is looking for help and because we at Fantasy-Faction love Mr. Sanderson and his work – we are going to ask our readers to give it to him.
Basically, Brandon Sanderson believes Mistborn should be turned into a film and is approaching studios trying to get people interested. What Brandon and the people working to get the film out there have done is stitch a ton of scenes from movies together in order to create something that gives the mood and atmosphere of Mistborn.
If you could take a bit of time, just 2 minutes in fact, to click and view what they have built, your viewing will add to their total hit count on YouTube. This is important, because the more people who view it – the more interest Brandon’s representatives have to show the studios that they have been approaching.
Here is what Brandon said:
“I figured I’d give you all an update on the status of the Mistborn film. Years have passed since I mentioned it had been optioned, and those years have not been spent in vain. The producers, Paloppa pictures, have done numerous drafts of a screenplay. They showed me each one, asking for input, and this latest screenplay is just fantastic. I’m very excited. It stays true to the soul of the story, yet at the same time adapts that story in a way that works better on film. I’m extremely excited.
Now that we have a great screenplay, we face a greater challenge: pitching the story to studios. I picked a smaller production studio when selling the rights because of their passion and their willingness to let me be part of the process. That means, however, that we face an uphill battle getting the film into production.
What can you do to help? Well, right now, the best thing to do is have a look at the “mood trailer” Paloppa has released. Note that this is not a true trailer, but more of a “fan trailer”-style clip. They’ve cut up different films and stitched them together in an effort to show what kind of film they want to make. It’s pretty cool. If you feel like sharing it and showing it off, I’m certainly not going to complain!
Otherwise, keep your fingers crossed for me and stay tuned. Paloppa is going to be pitching the film to studios during the next few months. (And, you know, if your uncle happens to be the head of Warner Brothers Pictures or is second cousin to Christopher Nolan and you want to give them the screenplay, feel free to drop me an email . . .)”
