And yes, that phone call the other day was with @mattsobel9. I’ve no doubt his version of Scorpio Races will be dangerous, mythic, & lovely.

Maggie Stiefvater’s The Scorpio Races takes place on the island of Thisby where water horses are raced every November. Only one person can win – and somebody always dies.
Focus Features bought the rights last year. Jack Thorne wrote the screenplay. David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith will produce.
Film rights were bought once before by Warner Bros. in 2011, but the company failed to make use of them within their allotted time frame.
