Obviously I have my finger on the pulse of the moment or something (it wasn't a total coincidence, no sirree), as my recent reviews of the Amtrak Wars series have coincided with development of a series of movies based on the books. Renamed The Talisman Prophecy, the proposed film sequence has been in development for a couple of years and things had gone quiet. Surprisingly, it turns out there have been a fair few developments behind the scenes and the Australian production company working on the project have secured funding for the continued development of the films. In addition, some interesting concept art has surfaced.
More info and artwork can be found here on the project's homepage and on the newly-established Facebook page dedicated to the project.
Whether this amounts to anything or not remains to be seen, but it's certainly interesting news.
