Dragonology Header

Often associated with writing sci-fi material, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have recently evolved into producers and directors. But they still take a dip into writing scripts here and there.

Now it’s being reported that Kurtzman and Orci will be producing the long-gestating Dragonology, a fantasy-based film for Universal.

The film is based on a series of 12 children’s books that are presented as faux fiction. So we could be seeing this film from a first-person point of view, which seems like an obvious choice to present the film since video recording technology wasn’t available during medieval times.

POV presentation isn’t confirmed, but it would be an interesting way to see the movie. The film will focus on a team of dragonlogists, who study the ways of the dragon, and uses their studies to stop a violent herd from destroying humanity.

It’s not known when the two will be ready to produce the film, since there is no cast or director attached, and it’s been over four years since we last heard about the project. The two are currently in the process of writing The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and are acting as producers for Ender’s Game and the Van Helsing reboot.

Based on the fact that the books are geared towards a younger audiences, it’s very likely that these books will be adapted into a family friendly film. We’ve already seen what Kurtzman and Orci can do as writers.

Star Trek has shown they have an understanding of mythology. But Transformers and Cowboys & Aliens have shown us that they have their flaws. But no one can get the success they have without a few hiccups, and here’s hoping that the two can give us something that is faithful to the original material and exciting for those who haven’t read it.
