Rodgers will executive-produce and write the pilot for the television arm of the adaptation, Variety reports. Miranda is producing the large-scale project, which will also include a film, and the Hamilton creator will compose original music for both the TV show and movie. Author Patrick Rothfuss and Robert Lawrence (Die Hard with a Vengeance) will also serve as producers on both arms of the Kingkiller Chronicle adaptation, which will be developed by Lionsgate.
Rothfuss' popular fantasy series, which includes three books (one of which has yet to be published) and multiple novellas, is told in two timelines: the present, where retired legendary hero Kvothe tells his life story, and the past, which chronicles Kvothe's young life as a renowned adventurer, scholar and musician.
The film adaptation will focus on the stories from the books, but the television series will expand the world beyond what Rothfuss has written.
