Fans of George R.R. Martin’s bestselling fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire, and the TV series it spawned, HBO's Game of Thrones, will be thrilled to learn that another one of Martin’s series, Wild Cards, will soon be heading to the big screen. Producers of the movie are SyFy Films and Universal Pictures, and Martin himself will have a hand in the film as executive producer, which leaves me feeling that the film will stay true to the phenomenal books.
Wild Cards is a series of anthologies edited by Martin and includes several stories by the author. The series was started in the ‘80s and has recently been revived by Tor. Each book is an anthology of collected stories, and the entire series is tied together by an over arcing plot. The series spans decades and follows a community of mutant characters as they fight over control of the city, encounter aliens and endure a slew of adventures that span the entire series.
