Dragonflight, the first novel in Anne McCaffrey’s extensive science fiction series, The Dragonriders of Pern, is being scripted for a live-action feature, with a plans to begin production some time next year. The series includes 21 novels and novellas as well as several short stories. One of the producers noted, in a bit of an understatement, that there is plenty of material for a franchise. No director or cast has been announced yet.
Pern fans should not hold their collective breaths, however, this is not the first time an adaptation has been attempted.
