Fanboy filmmaker Paul W.S. Anderson, along with producer Jeremy Bolt, are hoping to turn Peter V. Brett's yet unfinished post-apocalyptic "Demon Trilogy" into a big screen franchise starting with an adaptation of his first novel, "The Painted Man" (retitled "The Warded Man").

Synopsis:
The film follows three characters in their passage from childhood to maturity. They are inhabitants of a world plagued by the attacks of demons known as "corelings", which rise from the planet's core each night to feast upon humans.


The ongoing attrition of these attacks have reduced humanity from an advanced state of technology, to a 'dark age'. The only defense against the corelings are magical runes or "wards" that can be drawn, painted, or inscribed to form protective barriers around human settlements. These are, however, fragile and prone to failure.


The second volume of the Demon Trilogy is not yet out. Entitled "The Desert Spear," it is due to be published by Voyager UK and Del Rey in April 2010.

Another interesting tidbit; I guess Brett's novel was selected by Amazon.co.uk as one of the Top 10 Science Fiction & Fantasy books of 2008.
