Vonda McIntyre’s The Moon and the Sun Adapted for Film

The Moon and the SunThis is an official BVC shiny alert!

From Screen Daily: Good Universe has acquired international sales rights to Pandemonium’s The Moon And The Sun starring Pierce Brosnan and will kick off pre-sales in Cannes.

Yes, that’s right book fans—Pierce Brosnan will play Louis Quatorze in a screen adaptation of Vonda McIntyre’s book—which, by the way, you can purchase right here at Book View Cafe.

Read the book before you see the movie!

PIerce Brosnan

As Screen Daily writes: The fantasy-adventure centres on imagined events during the reign of King Louis XIV as the French leader’s bid for immortality leads him to capture and attempt to steal the life force from a mermaid, to be played by rising Chinese star Fan Bingbing. Complications arise when the Sun King’s 18-year-old illegitimate daughter Marie-Josephe falls for the mermaid’s keeper and risks everything trying to set him and the mythical creature free.

Sean McNamara, whose credits include Soul Surfer, will direct The Moon And The Sun. Pandemonium head Bill Mechanic will adapt the novel with co-writers Barry Berman, James Schamus and Laura Harrington and will also produce the film.

Congratulations, Vonda!

And did I mention … Pierce Brosnan?



Vonda McIntyre’s The Moon and the Sun Adapted for Film — 7 Comments

  1. Wonderful! I loved, loved, loved “The Moon and the Sun”, and I’m really quite fond of Mr. Brosnan, too.

  2. She looks almost too beautiful for the role, but I expect that SFX and makeup can fix that! Palpitating with excitement. You know that a premiere at a Worldcon is necessary, right? The full Oscar experience, red carpets, long gowns, and all?

  3. Holy cow! This is wonderful news! I’m so looking forward to this.

    And, by coincidence, Rossellini’s The Taking of Power by Louis XIV (La Prise de Pouvoir par Louis XIV) (1966) has come up on top in my netflix queue, and should arrive tomorrow.

    Love, C.
