The Magicians

With X-Men: First Class becoming a shockingly successful bit of cinema this summer, the film’s writers have apparently moved on to big things.

Deadline is reporting that Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz are heading to the small screen as writers for Fox’s newly announced drama series based on the Lev Grossman novel, The Magicians.

The novel follows the story of a group of 20-somethings who live in NY and study magic, in what has been described as Harry Potter for adults. The project has been batted around for a while now, and appears to have finally found a home at Fox, and in some more than capable hands.

Personally, I am was a huge fan of First Class, so while I’m not a big fan of fantasy narratives, I do really have the highest of hopes for this project.  Fox has done some really cool stuff with their TV, particularly things like Fringe, so hopefully this thing can live up to its immense potential.

Another fantasy novel has been optioned, this time for the big screen, as THR is reporting that Colleen Houck’s book, Tiger’s Curse, has been picked up by Ineffable Pictures, with the hopes of starting production within the next two years.  The first of five books, the story follows a teen as she attempts to end a 300-year curse, turning a white tiger into a prince.  The story definitely sounds intriguing, so while Ineffable Pictures is far from proven, this could be just the project to change that.

What do you think?
