Syfy Focuses on Stephen King’s Eyes of the Dragon
It’s kind of funny, really. You put the word “dragon” in anything, and sooner or later you’re bound to get the Syfy Channel’s attention. Such is the case for this latest adaptation heading our way from the kings of the CG creatures.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King’s fantasy novel Eyes of the Dragon could at last become a movie or miniseries.
The 1987 bestseller is being developed by Syfy as a longform project, along with a scripted drama series based on the comic Grey Legion and two high-concept movie projects. The network is set to announce all the titles later today at its upfront presentation in New York City.
Michael Taylor (“Battlestar Galactica”) and Jeff Vintar (I, Robot) will pen the Dragon script, with Taylor and Bill Haber as executive producers.
Once upon a time, in the Kingdom of Delain, King Roland is murdered and his son and heir, Peter, is framed for the crime. Peter and his loyal friends must battle an evil wizard and Peter’s usurper brother, Thomas, for the throne. Imprisoned in a tower, Peter conceives an escape plan that will take him years to execute before taking on Flagg, the powerful sorcerer who has masterminded this coup.
