You probably heard the rumors, but is there actually going to be a Black Dagger Brotherhood movie? we’ll discuss the possibilities of an adaptation to J.R.Ward’s most prominent work. This bestselling series definitely deserves to be on theatres or on the most popular streaming platforms, don’t you agree?
Let’s talk about this series and about what would be the best way to adapt J.R. Ward’s novels. Maybe a movie is not a great idea? yeah, we have some buts…
Is there going to be a Black Dagger Brotherhood movie?
So far there is no news about a movie adaptation of this series, author J.R. Ward has not mentioned any projects related to a film franchise yet.
However, is a film project the best way to adapt the Black Dagger Brotherhood books? think about it, this is an ongoing series that consists of more than 20 volumes (and that without considering the Legacy ones).
If the producers decided to make a movie adaptation of this series it would be quite likely that not all the volumes would be adapted. 20 movies? unlikely to happen.
A movie adaptation would also mean that there would be a lot of changes, the script would look way different from the original content, and we know that when this happens neither the fans of the books or the newcomers are pleased with the results, this is why there was never Maximum Ride movie sequel for example.
Is a tv show a good alternative to a Black Dagger Brotherhood movie?
Definitely. Long book series are easier to adapt in a tv series format, notice that movies are usually about 2 or 3 hours long, while a tv show season composed of 10 chapters of one hour each would equal 60 hours of content.
This is why Game of Thrones was not made into a movie, and the same happens with the adaptation of the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan (which consists of 14 volumes) that is being produced by Amazon.
A Black Dagger Brotherhood tv show sounds like the perfect way to adapt this paranormal romance story written by author J.R. Ward. Having more hours of content would allow the screenwriters to make a faithful adaptation to the original source.
We need more vampire stories
Let’s not forget that fans of vampire stories are in need of a new tv series starred by some powerful creatures thirsty for blood. Now that both The Vampire Diaries and the Sookie Stackhouse adaptations came to an end it’s time for a good replacement. And The Black Dagger Brotherhood, while a bit more steamy than the aforementioned, might be a good replacement for those.
It is kinda shocking that the Black Dagger Brotherhood does not have an adaptation yet. Streaming service platforms such as HBO, Amazon Prime Video, or Netflix are seemingly looking for book series to be adapted by their studios so they become fresh content in their platforms; so the fact that they have not reached an agreement with J.R. Ward is kinda unexpected, don’t you think?
Which actors do you think would be great for a Black Dagger Brotherhood movie (or a tv show)? leave a comment telling us your suggestions!
