It seems like it has been a while since a fantasy novel landed on the adaptation chopping block. Count on Warner Bros, who are about to score with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix this July, to remind us that the fantasy bubble has yet to burst.

Warner Bros Picks Shannara

Dan Farah has acquired the screen rights to The Shannara for Warner Bros.

A bestselling fantasy book series from Terry Brooks, Warner Bros. now has 14 titles to choose from. Think of it, the latest 14-installment franchise. To give the studio confidence, Brooks is the second biggest-selling (and living) fantasy book writer after J.K. Rowling and her Harry Potter.

The Shannara is set 1,000 years in the future, in a world populated by elves, trolls, gnomes and dwarves in a post-apocalyptic Earth. The Shannara family is a half-Elf, half-man clan with magical abilities and warrior skills who must save the world.

Though adaptations of The Shannara have long been considered, the author has always avoided the possibility. That is until Dan Farah's fanboy enthusiasm, with help of co-producer Ryan Colucci, convinced Brooks to submit.

Warner Bros. plans to kick off the franchise with The Elfstones of Shannara, the second book in the series.

Stay tuned for updates.
