how much money does it cost to turn a book into a movie?

William Nicholson responded:

Obviously it depends on how easy it is to film. The King's Speech cost about $15 million. A fantasy film, with masses of special effects, can cost $200 million.

me and my friend shave all read the entire wind on fire trilogy and loved it we also thought that it would make a great movie could you turn it into a movie or atleast get someone to we would love too see it become a movie what do you think on this subject

William Nicholson responded:

I would if I could. The people you need to ask are the film producers who make these decisions - and find the money.

How many lenguages has traduced Jango on? I think that's easy to convert the book's text to a script because It hooks much and the chapters are so short. I know that Jango was traduced to spanish in more than nine countries. If you did some publicity in other places, It would has more audience. J.C

William Nicholson responded:

I don't know how many other languages my books are in, but I'd love to publicise them abroad, as you say. The trouble is, time. I'm so hard at work with my new writing I'm reluctant to take too much time out travelling. Also, audiences for book tours tend to be quite small, so it's hard to know if it's really worth it.

Hi, Mr. William. I'm an passionate Spanish reader and I wanna say you that you ought shoot The noble Warriors trilogy because I think that all the people who've read it sure enjoy reading it and also they would see on the "Big Screen". So, What do you opine? Best Wishes. J.C

William Nicholson responded:

I'd love to see a film made of The Noble Warriors, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen. A film company would have to spend a lot of money, and they can't be sure it would be a hit.

Hi, Mr WIlliam. I'm an apassionate spanish reader and I wanna say you that you ought shoot the trilogy of The Noble Warriors because I think that all the people who've read it sure that enjoied it and would want to see on the "Big Screen". What do you opinion? Best Wishes.

William Nicholson responded:

I too think it would work well as a film, and I wrote a screenplay version of Seeker for Sony, but they decided not to proceed with it. It would have been very expensive, and I guess they just weren't sure enough that it would get an audience.

I would just like to say thank you for writing the Seventh level, I read it when I was fifteen and the content remained with me from then on, Losing your virginity is not so traumatic when you have been to the Jilly Andrews school of dancing. Twenty one years on and in a nostalgic phase I purchased a copy from amazon for 0.01p and promptly re-read it, It made me feel like an old wise friend had come to show me how to live again. So I was just wondering why you don't list it with your novels. I'am now going to buy a copy of The Society of Others as you are and unknowningly were my favourite author. Thank you Alan

William Nicholson responded:

I don't list The Seventh Level because at the time it upset a lot of people, and then disappeared as far as sales went; so I've just let it disappear. I've not re-read it myself since, and hardly know what I'd think of it. I was 29 when I wrote it - a long time ago now - and I put into it my best insights at that age - but I suspect I'd want to develop it very differently now. But I'm pleased that you found it worth something.
