Here is the September 2010 update on the current status of the “books to film” projects that have been mentioned on this blog to this point. I will attempt to do this once a month in order to follow each film until it reaches DVD. Please remember that release dates are subject to change, and that sometimes “Announced” and “In Development” films never get made, more’s the pity. (Please note that I update this post during the month as I find new projects, so check back periodically.)

As always, if you have any news about an upcoming book to film adaptation, please comment and let me know.

The current “books to film” list:

1776: In development with a release date sometime in 2011.
