Miranda is working with Rothfuss and Lionsgate Films to turn The Kingkiller Chronicle into a movie and TV franchise, with the possibility of a stage spinoff as well. According to Deadline, Miranda will act as co-producer, and he’ll be composing new music and songs for the franchise.
The Kingkiller Chronicle consists of two books so far, with a third on the way. The series focuses on a musician and poetic adventurer named Kvothe, and features a supporting cast of Game of Thrones-like proportions.
While the first movie will be a direct adaptation of the first book, The Name of the Wind, the TV series will expand the Kingkiller Chronicle universe with new characters from a collaboration between Miranda and Rothfuss. It’s an ambitious project, and the musical elements will certainly set it apart from other fantasy franchises.
