Hollywood News

As many of you know, a few days before San Deigo Comic-Con this year, the option on my books expired.

What this means is that ages ago, I sold some people the rights (the option) to make a TV show based off The Kingkiller Chronicles. They tried to make it happen, but it didn’t work out. Then, when the option period expired, all the rights reverted back to me.

Just so you know, this sort of thing happens all the time. The vast majority of things that get optioned never get made. The same way that most people that think about writing a book never get it published. Shit happens. People lose interest. Things get complicated. Projects lose momentum.

I don’t have handy statistics at my fingertips, but I’d be willing to bet a dollar that more than 98% of all book options end this way, with no TV show or movie or anything happening.

Anyway, my rights reverted. It didn’t come as a huge shock to me.

This, on the other hand, was a surprise:


(Click on the headline if you want to read the article.)

Because everyone was suddenly interested in the books,  I spent most of my Comic-Con having meetings with representatives from every major Hollywood power. At least that’s what it felt like to me. It was a strange experience, and I talked about it in some detail on the episode of Untitled Rothfuss podcast that Max and I recorded out at the convention.

To say that I didn’t know what I was doing in those meetings is a bit of an understatement. In fact, I remember starting several of the meetings by saying, “I have no idea what I’m supposed to do in this meeting.” I also dimly remember explaining to someone that there was no way you could turn The Name of the Wind into a movie. I explained it rather, well… emphatically for, like, 20 minutes. I’m pretty sure that’s fairly high on the list of things you’re not supposed to do in a meeting with someone who wants to turn your book into a movie.

I had fun though. It’s nice to be desired. For that brief moment in time I was the prettiest girl at the party, and everyone wanted to dance with me. (Only frequent readers of the blog can appreciate how clean I kept that little analogy.)

Princess Pat

The meetings weren’t stressful for this simple reason: I wasn’t that interested in turning my books into a movie. I know for a lot of authors, a movie deal is like the holy grail. It’s kinda free money. And if a movie gets made? Well, then, you get a truckload of cash, a bucket of fame, and your books get to hang out on the bestseller lists for a while. Usually a long, LONG while.

But honestly? Money’s never been a huge motivator for me. And my books already sell well. And I’m already more celebritous than I’m entirely comfortable with.

Most importantly though, I’ve never been that interested in a straight-up movie deal. Pretty much every fantasy movie created so far has been an action movie, or plot centered, or both. And my books aren’t like that. My books are about the characters. They’re about secrets and mysteries and the hidden turnings of the world. My books are all about antici-


-pation. And a movie, even a long movie, simply doesn’t have enough time to fit all of that stuff in. That’s why my original option was for a TV show. I wanted space for the story to breathe.

So when I met with these people from movie studios, I told them that I wasn’t terribly interested in a movie deal. Not to be a dick, but because I prefer to be honest with folks. I’m happy to have meetings, talk about stories, listen to a pitch…  As I said, it’s fun to be desired. It’s nice that you think my books are pretty. Let’s have a dance. But I wanted them to know that I wasn’t really planning on jumping into bed with anyone. (Damn. I knew the analogy was going to end up there eventually.)


There was one exception. When I met with Lionsgate, I said, “If you come at me with a movie offer, it’s going to be a hard sell. I’m not that excited about movies by themselves. But you guys are different from a lot of other studios. Those guys are huge. Monolithic. But you’re more agile and innovative. Your movie people and your TV people actually know each other. They could work together. Share resources.

I continued: “If you came at me with a pitch that involved a television show AND a movie, I’d listen to that. I’d listen really hard, because something like that would let us be big-budget while still giving my story room to breathe. It would give people the ability to spend more time in my world. I can’t think of anyone who has really done that, but it seems like we could have the best of both worlds that way. And it seems to me that you guys are one of the only places that could realistically pull something like that off.”

Yeah. I’m from small-town Wisconsin. But I’m not stupid. And it’s impossible to have 15 hours of meeting with Hollywood people without learning something about who’s who and how that world fits together.

But ultimately, I was just shooting my mouth off and I knew it. I was running on too much caffeine and too little sleep, but I still realized what I was saying was something along the lines of, “I see you guys are offering me the moon, but I’d really like the moon AND a chocolate cake with solid gold frosting. And you need to make the cake from scratch.”

So comic-con finished up. I went home. My coach turned back into a pumpkin and my pretty dress turned back into a geeky-tshirt and kinda grubby pair of cargo shorts. Which is probably for the best. As I’m not very good at important meetings or dancing. I’m way too beardy to be a princess.


The End.

*     *     *

Then Lionsgate got in touch. “About that whole TV-show-and-a-movie thing you mentioned,” they said. “If we’re going to do some sort of big narratively intertwined multi-platform development deal based on your books, wouldn’t it make more sense to do a video game along with the TV show and movies? Because seriously, why wouldn’t we want to do a video game too?” (I’m paraphrasing a little here you understand.)

I said, “What?”

*     *     *

Since then, I’ve been talking with Lionsgate kind of a lot. Going over particulars. Talking serious talks.

And when I say, “I’ve been talking with Lionsgate” I mean “Me and my team of skilled movie-smart people who do this for a living and some of them are powerful, hard-eyed lawyers.” Because like I said, I’m from small-town Wisconsin, but I’m not stupid.

And I’ll be honest, from the first moment I sat down at the table, I was ready to walk away. I liked the way Lionsgate was willing to dream big with me about adapting my books. They were willing to think outside the box. They were willing to make a whole new box just so we could go outside of it.

But… well… Hollywood is scary. The contracts are, to be quite honest, horrifying. And the power differential is immense. Even the smallest of studios is more powerful than some countries. And the biggest author ever is kinda not a very big deal at all.

So yeah. Silly as it might sound, from the very beginning of this process, I was willing to walk away from the deal. I was almost looking for an excuse to do it, because life is too short. I didn’t want to get a sack of money and pat on the head, then spend the next three years watching helplessly as they molested my books.


So we started to negotiate, and that’s where I received my biggest surprise of all.

You see, I never expected a studio would treat me like a human being. But through this whole process, Lionsgate has treated me with amazing respect. I’ve made what to me seem like reasonable requests, and they responded to them… reasonably. And I’m not just talking about pretty words here, they’re making contractual agreements granting me control of things. They haven’t just been reasonable, they’ve been kind, and understanding.


To be perfectly honest, it’s a bit disconcerting. I never anticipated that a Hollywood studio would treat me like a human being. Let alone want to work with me as a creative partner and respect the fact that I do, in fact, know a lot about how stories work. This story in particular.

So… yeah. That’s the news. Me and them, we’re gonna do a thing.

Lionsgate is making its own press release today and there will be stories in all manner of Hollywood news outlets pretty soon. It’s not a coincidence that my blog is launching up on the very same day as their big announcement. In the same hour, even. Lionsgate coordinated with me so I could share this news on my blog at the same time they’re launching their story.

This was important to me because if you read my blog or follow me on social media…  well… you’re a part of the reason my books are a big deal. A lot of you have been a part of my team for years, and I wanted the chance to tell you about this piece of news myself rather than have you hear it on the street.

The fact that Lionsgate was willing to go to some lengths to let me launch this blog simultaneously with their press release is another good sign, in my opinion. It shows they respect me, and it shows they respect you guys, too.

Now I know some of you will be reading this news with fear in your hearts. You’ll worry about them screwing it up. I understand. I know you love these books.

But hear me when I say this: You cannot love these books more than I do. You can’t care about them more than I do. I’ve put twenty years of my life into them. They ride next to my heart. They are my tangible soul.

And I’m not stupid. I hope by this point you know me well enough that you can trust me not to rush into… well… anything. If I cut a deal like this, it’s only because I really think there’s a chance for us to make something beautiful.

I’ll talk about this more on the blog later. I’ll answer questions and explain things and give more details.

Later. We’ll do that all later.

For now. Just for the next couple of days. How about we just let ourselves be a little excited about this? There will be plenty of time to fuss and fidget in the days to come. But right now, I’m not going to worry. Right now I’m just going to spend some time being a happy geek, excited at the thought of getting to see the Eolian or the Fishery. There are some scenes I’d love to see somewhere other than inside my own head.

I’m guessing there’s some scenes y’all would like to see, too….

See you later Space Cowboys,

    *SQUEEEEEEEE* I am really excited! That is awesome! Go Team Rothfuss!

    Also, Pat, my son, Monkey, who’s the same age as your Oot, says that he likes your pretty dress and thinks it should be pink. And he says boys can be Princesses if they want.

        Yeah, he’s a pretty smart little Monkey. And he thinks pink princess dresses are cool, but not as cool as Spiderman.

        Him and Oot met once, actually. At a book signing. They were both about 5 months old and did the thing that babies do when they meet and stare at each other and then wave and are new best friends. I probably have a picture around here somewhere.

      We should be careful about our expectations there, videogames based of movies/series usually aren’t well developted due to time (or script) constrains or don’t have a big budget. And it could just as well be a smartphone one.

      Sure, we would play it either way, but imo it’s largely the least exciting of the three (movie, series, game).

      I realize this is a bizarre place to throw out an offer like that. The video game industry can be as nefarious and confusing as the movie industry. Make sure whatever you do, you consult with people not directly associated with whomever Lionsgate helps choose to develop the game.

    I want to see a TV show with the kind of big-budget awesome that Game of Thrones got (because your stuff is SO much better so it’d be an even MORE amazing tv show!) and I wanna see the characters cast awesomely. That’s my biggest fear really. What if Kvothe and Bast are played by hunky jocks instead of pretty boys? What if Auri isn’t played by Evanna Lynch and Neil Gaiman isn’t Master Elodin? My mental images would be shattered forever. (Nuuuuu!)
    But I trust you because you’re awesome sauce amazing in the over-9000th degree! And I know you love your stories so much! I know this is going to be perfect. It just has to be!

    Until recently, even with the reassurances, I’d have been tipped into a “getting my hopes up but knowing that ultimately they’ll ruin it” tailspin, but after seeing how amazingly Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell was adapted for TV, I now believe it can be done.

I am also a big fan of you, Pat, and your work. If there is any way I could possibly help make this thing the best it can be, I would love the opportunity to try.

    I’m not saying this because I’m tactless. I’m not saying this because I’m opportunistic. I’m saying this because your books felt like a hug to me in a time when hugs were a rarity. And I would love to give back.

    I think it’s great news. Your world at the very least needed a tv series to do it properly. Something like the Marvel Netflix shows, where it’s high production values but more time given is the ideal situation for many book series I’d like to see adapted.
    What’s nice about this deal is they seem to have the confidence in the Kingkiller Chronicles as a franchise, if they’re committing to multiple mediums.

It’s way more work for you this way, with more content being produced, and with you having an active role in it, but I totally agree it wouldn’t work any other way. And of all the people to give more money and fame to, I think you’re a pretty good option – I’d say you’d handle it well given what we know of you!

    Ah I’m so excited! Amazing things to come! I’ve really enjoyed following you over the years and getting to meet you in Portland when the crowd overflowed into the mall singing the Sunshine song. You are not only an amazing author but a fantastic, warmhearted human being who gives back to the world in so many different ways. Thank you for being you Mr. Rothfuss, this world needs more people like you. Enjoy the ride, and don’t think for one second you don’t deserve it because there are thousands upon thousands of people that will disagree with you.
    By the way… Sweet Bebop reference. :-)

    First, I am VERY happy for your good news, although slightly trepidatious, because I know how many pitfalls there can be along the way in such a complex project. I believe you are not only extremely gifted, but also a very good person, and thus deserving of great success. May your fondest dreams about this come to fruition.
    Second, though, I must admit to also selfishly thinking, “Oh no! Now there will be even more delays before the release of The Doors of Stone!”
    I am old. I want –no, I NEED–to see the conclusion of Kvothe’s saga, even more than I want to see a realization of his world somewhere other than in my own imagination. Can you give those of us who wait any reassurance?

    Pat, this is awesome. I’m so happy to hear that you’re willing to take control, for better or for worse, and that you can take this in the direction that you want. A genuine article. A unique project – something beyond the rehashed norms that we’ve seen in the past. I’m convinced you can give us something great, if not for everyone, at least polarizing enough that some people will enjoy it a whole lot.

    Best of luck. Sincerely, I think you and lionsgate can make something great.

    Woo! :)

    HAVE YOU SEEN THEIR ORCS? Oh my god, my fangirl is huge for this movie based on the tiny things they’ve dribbled at us. Amazing armor. Photo real orcs. Weapons and costumes that LOOK RIGHT for that universe. They are taking their sweet ass time to make it AMAZING.

    I have full faith that this will happen and it will be glorious. Much like everything else, I will be patient to see it brought forth. Now I have a new excuse to Fangirl over Lionsgate more than I already have in the past.

    Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, the only worthy adaptation into the movies, all the others got pushed aside like a side job that had to be done so someone would not get fired, Enders game was very good but again.. soo much was ignored.
    Now on tv: GoT is good, it could be better had they not slashed so many important details and deviate so much on the last season. Dresden Files?? They raped that book and used the pages on cats litter.
    So many awesome books went to Blasphemy Island to get burnt on a stake and fed to the pigs… I just hope your series find a good and respectful home in Hollywood, we all do.

Honestly, I’m amazed he’s still able to work in Hollywood. He’s a chronic flopper. Do not trust him.

This is incredible news and as a resident of Small Town, WI I have absolute faith in your ability to navigate these new seas. I (we) am looking forward to anything you work on. Thank you for the stellar work you do and the time and effort you put into your craft.

    I love your books, I enjoy your blog and your podcast. You seem like an incredible person and I’m happy to support the charity you work with. Point is you’re great and I’m glad you live in Wisconsin. Because that’s where greatness belongs.

  65. Posted October 1, 2015 at 1:44 PM | Permalink

    So, many many moons ago I was sitting behind the front desk at a museum working on homework. One of the security guys who was a friend of mine came up to me and said, “Hey. You need to check out the review of this book that the Onion did, the book sounds like it is going to be pretty awesome.”

    So we pulled it up, and I read this review. Of this book. called Name of the Wind. By this guy, named Patrick Rothfuss.

    I decided that it did indeed sound like the book was going to be pretty awesome; and on my way home from work that night, I stopped at the bookstore and picked up a copy. It was entertaining; there were 3 covers to choose from. I ended up with what I’ve come to know now as “Fabio”.

    I devoured the book. It was so freaking good. And I was hooked.

    From that day forward, I’ve been keeping tabs and reading the blog and taking part in things as I can. I am really proud to have thrown out some good names for different things. I took advantage of the offer many years ago to mail your book with something cool and have it signed. My sister stood in line at a signing in DC until well after midnight to have Pat sign the second book for me.

    I re-read these books all the time, and had to buy softcover copies so that I can stop destroying my hardcovers. I have given away my books so many times to people that at this point, I just buy 2 or 3 of them at a time because its easier to just give the book to someone and get them hooked than try to “loan” it to them.

    I saw this post go live on Facebook, and I just smiled. Its been a really cruddy few weeks, I’ve been super sick and life has gone crazy. But I saw this announcement and I /smiled/. Then I immediately sent a message to my friend who loves NotW almost as much as I do along the lines of, “CHRIS. CHRIS. CHRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIS. CHRIIIIIS.” /link. “I NEED MY FANGIRL BUDDY OMG CHRIS”.

    And his response was essentially, “I need more money. So that I can buy a tank and load that with even more money, and throw all of it at high velocity at this.”

    This is amazing. I am so happy for you, and I am so glad that this is happening in what could be considered the golden age of book adaptation… I am so excited. and I am so looking forward to seeing this world come to life. I know that you’ll keep them honest, and the world will make you proud. Which will make us proud.

    Also I wanted to nominate CD Projekt RED as people to work with for the video game portion of the project, if you can. They made the Witcher video game series based on those books and they are amazing. I had to get a new video card to play the latest one but I kid you not I regularly spend time just standing around and admiring the scenery like I would on a nice hike. And there’s great stories and voice acting on like every single side quest! They also handle the *ahem* adult scenes quite tastefully.

    Anyway like you said just thinking about being able to see a really well made recreation of the Eolian or the Fishery, and maybe even walking around freely in them…. dang son. Congratulations, can’t wait to see what happens.

    And a videogame?? Wow. I picture Kvothe running over the roofs of Tarbean, Assassin’s Creed style haha. But I’d love it to be a graphic adventure.

    This is ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!, I got to say that I’ve been having some interesting conversations (in my head of course) about what could it be to adapt The Name of the Wind to a movie or a TV Show. I cant claim that I am great movie fan, know my way around, but not to the point that I understood which Holiwood studio is better then X or Y… but I have to say, I was expecting for this to be on HBO, those guys looks like they know their way around AND spend some good money creating the world and the story.

    ok, thanks, I got that off my chest :)

    Now the question who will be killing me (sloowwwly) is, who’s going to play Auri?, Elodin!, Denna!!!!
    omg, won’t even ask about Kvothe :S, did I mention that this will be killing me slooooowly??

    Thanks Pat for being errr theh way you are and stand for what you truly believe, I respect your work and I’ve come to respect you as a person (all those social networks thingies can go a long way).

    Wow, it’s really hard to imagine your books being made into a movie, not to mention a Video Game!
    In my opinion a TV Series would be the best option although I can’t think of a way to work it out with the first person viewpoint.

    But I, too, trust your understanding of how to tell a good story and anyways: It’s YOUR story and those are YOUR books. If you just sold the rights off for as much money as you could get I’d be ok with it, it’s for you to decide to do with it whatever you want (though in this case I’d probably wish I never saw the movie)!

    All in all I stick to the advise you gave at the Frankfurt Book Fair: I don’t expect anything and if something good comes off of it I enjoy it anyways. If not I still have those wonderful books to read and to listen to and you earned money you’ll probably donate to a good cause :)

    On that note: keep up the good work!

    Congratulations, Pat, but I have to admit that I am laughing to myself about all the actors and actresses in Hollywood crapping themselves. One of them has to act out the complex character that is Kvothe. He has to play supreme confidence and total fear at the same time. One of them has to act out the complex character that is Denna. She has to play a strong, dominant woman who has been beaten and abused. A musician has to play music as beautiful as you describe being played at the Eolian. And I can’t wait, because you won’t let them fall short of these wonderful characters! Haha. Crapping themselves I say!!

    Wow! So excited! I only sorta love book->movie because the studio or whatever changes too much. But, it sounds like Lionsgate may support you as creative person. As it should be, nothing done without your approval. But I would LOVE to see your epic wonderfulness on the big screen. I don’t really watch TV and can’t do video games (too many buttons on the consoles) but it will likely gain you even more lovers of your work.

    On another note, I’m using this as excuse to gush unabashedly.
    I first read The Name of the Wind kinda randomly when I was bookless in airport. I knew nothing about it beforehand. Needless to say, I fell in love with it ALL. And then there’s Auri… I am so in love with that character because I can somehow relate to her. I cried when I finished Slow Regard for Silent Things. Not because I was sad, but because I was so moved and felt it was beautiful. Lastly, I have a few select books tattooed on me, just my favorites. The Name of the Wind is one of them. And I’m going to add Auri’s broken but beautiful gear next. Uh, I’ll stop babbling now :)

    A TV show, movies and a vieogame? I kind of love Lionsgate right now ;-)
    I’m so excited and for the first time bummed not to live in the USA. Because that means I can’t really support you about the TV show because I either have to wait till it’s out here in Germany or I’ll stream it right after the series gets aired in the USA… and guess what I will choose…
    But because my family is crazy about your work we will buy those things on DvD at least once and probably even twice so I think, when the time comes, I don’t have to feel guity.
    And regarding movie and game realeases we don’t have it that bad here in Germany…

    And THANK YOU so much, not ony for your over the moon fantastic writing, but also for releasing this news today. I had an operation today and feel really shitty because (thanks nature/life/mutation?) pain medication does nothing for me. (and having things stabbed into ones belly button is quite the opposite of fun.)

    So congratualations on the great news, good luck with the project and everything else you may need it with!

    Oh and i also wanted to say: take all the Time you need to finish the third book, because only when you do so you’ll be happy with your work and that is the most important thing! And only then you will be happy with your life and that’s even more important!

    Hi Pat!

    This is AMAZING news. Out of all of the Lionsgate movies I’ve seen I think I have only not liked one, in fact when I start to watch a movie and the familiar music and outline of stars come up, (now that they have changed from the gears :D ) I sit up a bit straighter in my seat and pay a bit more attention.

    I am SO excited for YOU and US!!

    Take care and try not to be too overwhelmed (like I am)

    The end of your post made me tear up a bit. I think one of the pitfalls of being a geek is that we tend to be pretty smart people, so when we are presented with a path, we tend to believe we know how we’ll feel about destination before we even set foot on the road.

    I think “How about we just let ourselves be a little excited about this?” is my new mantra.

    I got so impossibly excited I finally registered to WordPress (I wanted to do this in many of the previous posts, but… Well, I was lazy.). Anyway.

    I absolutely HATE when someone messes around with my favourite books.
    But this time I’m not scared. If there is one author who I believe will be there the whole time just to guarantee a beautiful outcome, that’s you!
    So congratulations, Pat!!! Thank you for being such an amazing human being. And may the force be with you on this Hollywood journey!

    I am excited, and even more excited by the fact that you’re going to have a creative hand in the mix. Huzzah, sir. Huzzah.

    I am excited and hopes this pans out. Gaiman said something about Terry Pratchett not believing that a movie will be made until he’s sitting in the theater, eating popcorn, and watching it…and maybe not even then.

    So while I hope to see a good adaptation of Name of the Wind make it to the big and small screen, I’ll really start believing when the movie is in post-production.
