Jeff Smith’s blog comments on the comics’ move to Warner Bros:
The whole thing happened very quickly last Friday night. Warners called and made us a real offer, it was as simple as that. They stated their seriousness to stay true to the books, and after a couple of back and forths, the whole thing was over in an hour and a half. Vijaya and I had a celebratory drink and went to bed. We woke up Saturday morning to find the internet on fire!
As previously reported, that “serious offer” was a “mid-six-figure option against seven figures for purchase.” So let’s hope that celebratory drink was Dom Pérignon.
