    Pretty much my thought as well. This is either going to be great, or very, very bad :look

    Yeah, I love Way of Kings but it seems like an odd place to start. And how in the world are the going to fit that enormous book into a single movie? :eek I hope the next announcement is that it's being split into multiple films.

    Brandon himself stated on Reddit that he believes they're likely to start with Mistborn.

    Personally, I'd prefer Elantris first.

    Elantris would be cool to see in a movie :)

    Mistborn would also be cool, the world of ash and gray...

    I think Mistborn would be a good place to start, a trilogy of movies could give the entire collection momentum. I think the magic system is also a good one to play with as a movie.

    I agree that it would be difficult to make a single movie Way of Kings. I would almost prefer a TV series, even if that means waiting a long while for it to come to Netflix/DVD.

    I read the Way of Kings right after Wheel of Time. I read Mistborn later so Way of Kings seems like the perfect starting place to me.
