Big news in Todd Land, I and my writing partner Holly Golden have sold Medusa, an original pitch to the nice people at Sony Animation. That’s partly why things have been quiet here at What Does the Protagonist Want? We’ll be writing the screenplay, and the movie is going to be directed by Lauren Faust, who created My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. So we’ll be appealing to both Greek Mythology fans and Bronies. You can read all about it here!

  1. Frickin’ awesome news! Congrats!

      Hey thanks! Yeah, it’s actually pretty exciting to sell anything original in the current Hollywood environment, so Holly and I are pretty pumped. And congratulations to you on your ongoing dragon-related success, I saw you have a whole new book out!

      • Yep, the series is going strong. Went on book tour for The Tropic of Serpents last month, and I should be getting copy-edits for Voyage of the Basilisk any day now. Plus I’m running a Kickstarter for a different series. So, y’know, keeping busy. 🙂

        Will you be able to update us as Medusa trundles along? Or do you have to sign an NDA saying you’ll keep your mouth shut until the movie comes out?

    Congratulations, sure to be fantastic. I hope you can squeeze some analysis of movies in between rewrites and touching up the screenplay.
