I heard that they were targeting 'Elfstones' as the first movie. Makes sense given that Brooks even admitted that 'Sword' was way too much of a LOTR ripoff.

I would love to see the whole series made. But yeah "Elfstones" would be a great start.

No way, if they are going to do the series they need to start with Sword. That being said, I'd love to a faithful adaptation of these books on the big screen.
