UPDATE: Kenneth Paolini, along with many online news sources, have confirmed that Stefen Fangmeier is to direct the movie and that filming will take place in Europe beginning in July. This is the news we’ve all been waiting for. Now that a director has been found, progress will really start picking up on the pre-filming front.
Stefen Fangmeier is a well-known visual effects supervisor for many movies, including Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, Signs, The Perfect Storm, Jurassic Park, and many others. We’ll be sure to post any updates we have as soon as we receive them! (We have no casting information as of yet, so please don’t email in asking for information.)
