C.J. Cherryh’s MORGAINE Books Optioned for Film

Variety is reporting that C.J. Cherryh’s Morgaine fantasy book series has been optioned for film by producer Aaron Magnani. The plan is to launch a possible franchise called The Gates of Morgaine.

Cherryh’s Morgaine Cycle consists of four novels: Gate of Ivrel (1976), Well of Shiuan (1978), Fires of Azeroth (1979), and Exile’s Gate (1988). The series is about a time-traveling heroine named Morgaine and her loyal companion Nhi Vanye i Chya. Described as “sword-and-sorcery meets hard sci-fi”, the epic story chronicles one woman’s mission across time and space to preserve the integrity of the universe.

Screenwriter Peter Arneson has already penned The Gates of Morgaine: Ivrel, the screenplay based on the first novel.
