The first book in the series is not yet available to the public, with DreamWorks picking up the work in manuscript form. Francesca Haig has the next two chapters sketched out, insuring a franchise for the studio in case the first movie catches on with audiences. Studios first caught wind of the novel series when six separate UK publishers started chasing the rights. The book does not yet have a U.S. publisher, with stateside rights going to auction on July 10th.
DreamWorks might wait and see how The Fire Sermon books resonate with an audience before even setting up a production start date, so its likely we won't see this trilogy debut on screen until at least 2016.
The Fire Sermon is in development .
