The Door Within Movie: Prayer is THE thing!


In the last WEEK, I've had a dozen or more emails, IM's, posted comments, etc. asking about the possibility of The Door Within (my first book) being made into a movie. Maybe God is on the move because, just this past WEEK, I've had some VERY preliminary discussions on that very possibility. But here's the thing: a Door Within movie is still a million miles away from happening. These are just the very first, tentative, eency weency steps. So, my prayer warriors out there: Pray. Tell your friends: Pray. eMail your Prayer Chains to: Pray. Seriously, this isn't the time to go crazy with movie thoughts. But DO go crazy with prayer. Much love and thanks to you!

Ever since I read the Door Within Series, I've thought about how awesome it would be if it was actually made into a movie. Which is why I am stoked that you are strongly thinking about it Mr.Batson.

I hope and pray that God leads you to what is best! I'm telling every one of my friends to pray for you and this decision!

I'm praying! :) I hope it does happen. The Door Within is EPIC.

...I also hope Isle of Swords will be next. :D

Dylan said...

TOTALLY YES!!!!! I hope it has almost all the same stuff as the book, otherwise it would just be a waste of time.

Adam Jr said...

WOW!! I will pray hard!

Ian said...

That would definitely be great. I am one who gets mad if a book is changed when made into a movie, but I understand that a movie is not and cannot be a book. I'll be praying for you.

I REALLY REALLY want this to happen. I have since day one of reading The Door Within. IT IS EPIC!!!! But, I have my own dreams of what The Realm looks like and what the characters look like and I worry they won't live up to my expectations. And I am sure you feel the same way, wanting to see your world come alive the way you made it. And I am sure each of your fans feels this way. I will be praying that if it be God's will it will come to be the way He wants. Also, I think it would be an AMAZING testimony to the lost so, Let God's Will Be Done!!!

Will be praying :)

Ever since I first read our first book around 17ish years old I fell in love with it.
Although I'm only 21 and have yet to finish collage I have been hoping that a movie of this book would come out regardless of who made it as long as it was good! Then I swore that after I get my director in film degree if the book is not a movie by the time I was 30ish I would set out to make it haha. Although it is still a dream and there is a long road ahead I do hope it gets made into a movie that rivals something like Lord of the Rings in quality!

Best wishes and prayers

I agree with what JezzianO said. I'm a film major in college right now, and The Door Within is actually partly what inspired me to go into film. I think this would be an awesome movie- I repeat: AWESOME. May God's will prevail if He does want this to be so. Thanks for all of your awesome writing, and your heart to use your gifts for the King.
