Sarah, and all others posting about this, need to stop refering to it as an adaptation. You cannot adapt something when there is no source material to adapt from. It will basically just be a glorified FanFic in movie form, and there is far more terrible FanFic out there than anything of true quality.

This is pretty insane news no matter how it falls out, right? Lots to gossip about!

While i would definitely love to see 3 movies set in the AOL it should be done as an adjunct to the Show, using the same Actors for Lews Therin and the Forsaken. I would think the plan would be the first Movie starts at the time of the Drilling and the beginning of the fall. The second movie would cover the War of Power ending with the Strike at Shayul Gul and the beginning of the Breaking. The 3rd Movie the founding of the White Tower and the Second Compact.

A lot remains unknown. All we know for sure is there is a writer and the producers from the show. Since the Forsaken have yet to be cast (as far as we know), it is viable for this to still happen. From the sounds of blurb it seems this could be after LTT has created Dragonmount, and thus he wouldn't be needed. In fact the only Forsaken that would be left is Ishy.
