Warner Bros. is looking to set up what it can for franchises these days, having made a lot of money off of both Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings in both film and merchandise rights and while the whole comic book realm looks tantalizing, they’re not sticking to just that. They’ve optioned the rights to Dragonriders of Pern, which was kicked around about three years ago with some attempts to get it made again. There’s twenty-two main books in the series that began back in 1968 where writer Anne McCaffrey involved other writers over the years to expand and build onto the world she created.

It’s like that those involved in the previous attempt to bring the film to life are no longer involved, but it had some interesting folks attempting it.

With Anne McCaffrey having passed in 2011 at 85 years old, and still writing the series up until her death, it would definitely be something to see a property she dedicated so much of her life to coming to the big screen and to more peoples awareness.

Plot summary: To the nobles who live in Benden Weyr, Lessa is nothing but a ragged kitchen girl. For most of her life she has survived by serving those who betrayed her father and took over his lands. Now the time has come for Lessa to shed her disguise—and take back her stolen birthright.

But everything changes when she meets a queen dragon. The bond they share will be deep and last forever. It will protect them when, for the first time in centuries, Lessa’s world is threatened by Thread, an evil substance that falls like rain and destroys everything it touches. Dragons and their Riders once protected the planet from Thread, but there are very few of them left these days. Now brave Lessa must risk her life, and the life of her beloved dragon, to save her beautiful world. . . .
