Forthcoming SFF Adaptations for Film and TV

Natalie Zutter, at the always useful Tor blog, has been looking at forthcoming adaptations of SF and fantasy books for film and TV. Some of these are very intriguing; I’m particularly interested in the coming to screen of Kendare Blake’s Anna Dressed in Blood, one of the darker YA paranormal romances I have read, where the human protagonist and narrator (unusually) is male and the monstrous lover a ghost. Other promising ventures are TV’film versions of Alan Moore’s ground-breaking graphic novel Watchmen; Richard K. Morgan’s SF Altered Carbon; Roger Zelazny’s ingenious fantasy series The Chronicles of Amber; China Mieville’s Kafkaesque The City and the City. YA novels that may be adapted include V. E. Schwab’s tale of fantastic parallel Londons, A Darker Shade of Magic; Alexandra Bracken’s tough dystopia of teen mutants, The Darkest Minds. Then there’s a TV adaptation of Deborah Harkness’s witch-and-vampire All Souls Trilogy.

It’s a huge list, but worth browsing; TV and film adaptations are (possibly) forthcoming of comics and novels in a wide range of fantastic literature genres, from children’s, YA, and adult narratives.
