Weitz Brothers Adapting Elric

By ON

Empire Online reports that Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass) and brother Paul Weitz (American Pie, About a Boy) will adapt Michael Moorcock’s “Elric” saga:

Elric of Melniboné, aka Elric Kinslayer, aka The White Wolf first appeared in print in 1961, and is the anti-hero of more than a dozen books. A physically weak, perpetually sickly albino who’s the outcast Emperor of a race of cruel, ancient decadent people, he’s no musclebound Conan-type, instead drawing his power from the spirit-sucking runesword Stormbringer, an evil entity with whom he struggles for his own soul. And he’s frankly one of the greatest fantasy characters out there – albeit one who’s going to be fiendishly hard to make work on screen.
