For the next TV adaptation, what would you like to see?

Moderators: Jason, Toothy, Tonyblack

It would be great to see Wyrd Sisters adapted but that's probably low on the list of priorities seeing as there's the animation. However, I just can't decide between them, the Watch or the wizards - argh!

Welcome to the site, fords. :D

I'm wondering if they are holding off on the Witch and Watch books until they get the perfect Sam Vimes and Granny Weatherwax.

Those two roles are going to be tough ones to fill.

Thanks guys!

Now there's a good question for another thread. Who indeed would be the perfect Vimes and Granny Weatherwax? *ponders*

I'll have to think on that one. :?

Personally, I think I'd make a great Sam Vimes. :lol:

Well, on of the books I would really like to see is "Soul Music".

Shouldnt be to hard to film i think, cause there is not mutch interference of 'well-known charachters' from the book. Most of the main cast is not mentioned in other books, except the wizards with Stibons and you need Susan, Death and CMOT aside the band itself, and it would not take mutch in special effects either.

What a friendly site! *waves to everyone*

If Sky are on board with the finance, I think the production values of the next adaptation will be up there with Going Postal. Sky recently announced they are keen to adapt many more novels for the small screen with Skellig, Strikeback and the Discworld the highest profile ones; I have no idea if they intend to do another Discworld novel, but I'd be very, very surprised if they didn't.

I do apologise for my rambling, but I think the point I'm trying to make is that as Sky have plenty of cash the next adaptation will look fantastic, whatever it turns out to be :)

No need to apologise for rambling. We have the Discworld branch of the Ramblers Association here. :lol:

Soucery is going to be the next one, and possibly Making Money after that but not certain about MM :)

Oooh, Sourcery would be fantastic! Let's hope David Jason doesn't return as Rincewind though, or if he does he doesn't ham it up like in COM. However, I must insist on Making Money having no cast changes :D
