Guy Gavriel Kay’s World Fantasy Award-winning novel Ysabel has been optioned for feature film development by Maryke McEwen of Kinetic Productions and Jeanne Strømberg and Alan Hausegger of StrømHaus Productions in Toronto, Ontario. Kinetic Productions is an independent production company, and StrømHaus Productions specializes in feature film adaptations of literary works. Debbie Wood of Westwood Creative Artists negotiated the deal.
Though I’ve not read Ysabel, I’m a huge fan of Kay’s works and, from what I gather, this one seems like it makes the most sense as a film. As with all things Hollywood, though, I’ll believe it when I see the first trailer… and maybe not even then!
