The next TV, Film

Postby Sammytheshammy » Sun Jun 27, 2010 7:08 pm

Hi

I think that it would be a brilliant idea to have witches aboard as the next tv film this book was my first introduction to the disc world and I have been hooked ever since. I think good characters would be:

Dawn French as Nanny Ogg
Emma Chambers (Alice Tinker for vicar of dibley) as magrat Garlic
Maureen Lipman or Maggie Smith as Granny weatherwax.

That would be really cool 8)

Hey hey Sammytheshammy! Nice to see you on the site. I'd really want to see Guards Guards, but i'm reading mort right now and it probably would be good as well. :)

Hi All,

I would love to see any of the City Guards books made into a film, Lords and Ladies would be excellent too. Or maybe they should react to the current vampire craze and go for Carpe Jugulum.

And for Non Discworld I have always thought that Good Omens would make a brilliant film.

Welcome nickac! :D

There were plans to make Good Omens, but they had all sorts of problems getting a director and funding as far as I remember. :(

Welcome, nickac :)

The director wasn't so much of a problem, Terry Gilliam bought the rights from Pterry and Neil for the princely sum of one groat (still owed, from what I understand) and still owns them. The problem was more about finance. Terry Gilliam likes to make his films independently, but while he could raise most of the cash for the actual filming, he couldn't get Hollywood to agree to stump up for distribution and marketing. For the kind of budget Good Omens would have required ($45-50 million, US, as of five years ago), the financiers naturally wanted to see the film in multiplexes world wide in order to maximise the chances of a return on the investment. You don't do that without Hollywood on board, so the money melted away. It's a shame, because Terry Gilliam is probably the perfect man to film it.
