SF TUESDAY: ALLEN STEELE'S 'COYOTE' SF NOVEL SAGA TO BECOME TV SERIES! 'IRON DANGER' EPIC SF ADAPTATION OF KALEVALA EPIC GETS WILDLY IMAGINATIVE TRAILER!

'COYOTE' SF SAGA
TO BECOME TV SERIES
Here's another sf book series to be turned into a television series: as 'Deadline' reports Allen Steele's Hugo Award winning five book sf saga COYOTE will be made into a sf show. The story is set in the not too distant future, in an America that has slipped steadily into fascism. The stories kick off when a group of revolutionaries hijack Earth’s first interstellar spaceship destined for the nearest habitable planet. The hostile and divided crew must unite to rebuild society on a strange new world 46 light years from Earth.

'IRON DANGER' TRAILER
 SF ADAPTATION OF KALEVALA EPIC
And to finish today's news in the sf vein, check out a rather gorgeous and wildly imaginative trailer and posters for new sf movie IRON DANGER a 21th century big screen version of famous Finnish epic Kalevala which even famous Tolkien was inspired by!
STEAM PUNK FANTASY
A bold retelling of the ancient Viking epic – a modern action adventure based on the magical civilization of Kalevala, which combines fantasy and steam punk elements, IRON DANGER will now see Kalevala's main character Väinämöinen as a ripped, muscle bound hero. Armed with a hoe, he faces off against mechanical ‘tank bears’ ridden by the gatekeeper of a northern fortress that houses a precious magical artefact. The movie should be out in 2017 coinciding with Finland’s 100th anniversary of independence!
