Posted on May 26, 2015 by Flames

Filmscope Entertainment is pleased to announce that they have signed an exclusive deal with New York Times best selling and acclaimed author, Margaret Weis, for the film and television rights to her Sci Fi book series Star of the Guardians.

Margaret Weis has written over 60 published books and sold more than 35 million copies including Star of the Guardians, co-authoring the Dragonlance book series and co-creating the Dragonlance game world for RPG game play.

Filmscope’s Deidre Kitcher negotiated the rights with Random House and Margaret Weis and commented “I have been a huge fan of the series and the author Margaret Weis for many years. I first read the books in the 90’s and what attracted me to the series in particular was the strong female protagonist, the intricate relationships between the characters and the epic scale of the story.”

Margaret Weis commented, “I am so thrilled that Filmscope Entertainment have acquired the rights to Star of the Guardians. This series has long been dear to me. The Star of the Guardians novels were the first novels I wrote and, like a first love, they remain very special. I have had the privilege of being closely involved with this project from the beginning and I can¹t wait to see my vision come to life.”

More exciting news about Star of the Guardians will be revealed at a special event with Margaret Weis at the world’s largest Fantasy and Sci Fi convention, DragonCon 2015, held annually in Atlanta in September. A website (StaroftheGuardians.com) and Facebook page (Facebook.com/staroftheguardians) has also been created to keep fans of Margaret Weis and the series updated with the latest developments.

The Star of the Guardians book series is about a Royal Guardian who battles her ex-lover, a powerful and ruthless Warlord, in the ultimate fight to control a galaxy and to restore glory to the kingdom and the rightful heir to the throne.
