Personally, I think they should go back to more of the earlier novels instead of jumping ahead to Going Postal...all three movies so far have been Ankh-Morpork stories...let's get the Witches started with "Equal Rites" or another option would be to do one of the stories like "Small Gods" that take place entirely outside AM.

Welcome to the site Redwood Elf! :D

The rumour (not sure how much truth is in it) is that the next one will be Sourcery. So possibly Sir David Jason back as Rincewind.

My vote would go to Monstrous Regiment.
It seems that beggars can actually be choosers.

Hellooo and welcome from me, Redwood Elf! :lol:

I agree with mspanners. I saw Guards! Guards! at the theatre and really enjoyed it. With the right casting, special effects, and production values I reckon that it could translate well to the tv.
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

I'd vote for Guards! Guards! :roll: The rest of the Watch books would be pretty awesome too :)
Me and a couple of friends were thinking about doing a machinima of one of the Watch novels. Not sure how well it'll turn out, but the results should be entertaining!

Witches Abroad.

The main problem I see with doing WA as the first witches story is the same problem I find with doing "Going Postal" so early in the adaptation cycle...since the books are more or less in chronological order, they really should do the stories that introduce the witches first, and "Equal Rites" is really the one that starts the witches' stories, just like "The Color of Magic" introduces Rincewind and tells how he got the Luggage and so on.

Equal Rites would be a good book to dramatise.
Best wishes,

Or Lords and Ladies... although therefore you should first make a movie of Witches Abroad... OR you could make a really long movie out of the two books. Like a six-hour movie. :wink:
