Jon Favreau To Direct SHANNARA TV Series For MTV

We had heard that a tv show based on Terry Brooks' best selling series of fantasy novels was in the works already, but now a new report reveals that MTV will develop it with a straight-to-series option. Plus. Iron Man director Jon Favreau is on board.



THR report that MTV are teaming up with Jon Favreau and Smallville duo Al Gough and Miles Millar to produce a television show based on the 20 strong series of novels in Terry Brooks' Shannara saga, which has been running for the past 25 years. There has been one graphic novel also - The Dark Wraith Of Shannara - published back in 2008. The story is set after the destruction of our civilization in the "great wars", with the world reverting to a medieval state and magic re-emerging. Many of the protagonists in the series are descended from the Eleven noble family of Shannara. Apparently the series will begin by adapting the second novel in the series, The Elfstones of Shannara.
