9781473209336 9780575081437 9780575081406A little over a year ago, fans of Patrick Rothfuss' The Kingkiller Chronicles series were doing a happy dance - Lionsgate had won the rights to adapt the series across multiple platforms, including video games!

Now The Wrap reports that a creative producer has been named: Lin Manuel-Miranda! That means it's one step closer to happening people! Manuel-Miranda & Rothfuss have been cited as being each others' inspirations in the past, so this can only mean good things for fans.  As one of our favourite (and most reviewed) series, we cannot wait to see what these two creative geniuses come up with!

A very excited Miranda said, “Pat Rothfuss’ ‘Kingkiller’ books are among the most read and re-read in our home. It’s a world you want to spend lifetimes in, as his many fans will attest. Pat also writes about the act of making music more beautifully than any novelist I’ve ever read. I can’t wait to play a part in bringing this world to life onscreen.” [source: variety.com]
