Adapt This: Bitter Seeds – Nazi Supermen vs Warlocks of Britain

Posted by LiveFor on April 17, 2010

This novel by Ian Tregillis sounds amazing and would make an amazing film.

Raybould Marsh is a British secret agent in the early days of the Second World War, haunted by something strange he saw on a mission during the Spanish Civil War: a German woman with wires going into her head who looked at him as if she knew him. When the Nazis start running missions with people who have unnatural abilities a woman who can turn invisible, a man who can walk through walls, and the woman Marsh saw in Spain who can use her knowledge of the future to twist the present Marsh is the man who has to face them. He rallies the secret warlocks of Britain to hold the impending invasion at bay. But magic always exacts a price. Eventually, the sacrifice necessary to defeat the enemy will be as terrible as outright loss would be.

“A major talent… I can’t wait to see more.”
—George R. R. Martin

“Mad English warlocks battling twisted Nazi psychics? Yes please, thank you. Tregillis’s debut has a white-knuckle plot, beautiful descriptions, and complex characters– an unstoppable Vickers of a novel.”
—Cory Doctorow

Could you imagine that on the big screen – German Ubermen going toe to toe with Warlocks controlling the very elements of Mother Earth.

Who would you cast in it?
