Re: TV Shows about Vikings and pirates in development

A guy wanted me to write a Viking film script based on his outline, but it was seriously awful, and he wouldn't let me change it into something, well, better. Centered on a wimpy, artistic kid forced to become a Viking like his father. And that makes it sound a lot more interesting than it was. The character as written had no internal life, and he wouldn't let me give him one. He's now going to write it as a novel.
Sounds a bit like the "Lindisfarne" storyline in Northlanders, the DC/Vertigo series by Brian Wood about the Viking Age.
