Hello everyone, I started reading the Ashes series about a month and a half ago and I am currently on Flames from the Ashes (#18) I really like the series and it just keeps getting better and better. I was browsing the forums when I saw this thread and decided that I would join up just to post on this thread how I think they should make an Ashes TV show.
I think the best way to go around getting an Ashes TV show would be to have it be broken down into two episodes per book, the reason being that each book usually has a book one and book two per full book. So they could just end the first episode at the end of the first book and have each episode be an hour long, sort of how Band of Brothers was. If it was on HBO they could still have a lot of the action shown but would most definitely tone down the rape and stuff like that (maybe just like hint at it and people would get the idea).
As for actors I really have no idea who would play a good Ben Raines. For Cecil I was thinking that maybe Chiwetel Ejiofor
would be pretty good, he was pretty awesome in both Serenity and Redbelt. For buddy I was maybe thinking maybe Skeet Ulrich
he did an phenomenal job in the post-apocalyptic TV show Jericho, he might be a little older than the actual character but I still think he could pull it off. For Ike, Dan, Georgi and others I really have no idea, Cecil and Buddy was the only one I could find someone for =P
