I'm a big fan of the books, so it's more than likely that I'll see this

Five years, wow, someone had better get working on a real Prolong Treatment if Jolie is to appear in a series. Good news, although I wonder how the ships, weapon designs, and long-range battle tactics will work for a movie. How they'll handle the depiction of Nimitz (not to mention his abilities, both overt and covert) is another issue. A bad CGI depiction could easily look fake or too cartoon-like.
Remember how teh Honorverse works - the first movie will be the two fleets closing on each other - the second will feature the opening salvo - and the third will featiure the return salvo...

I'm not a big fan of the books, but I enjoyed the early ones enough and like this sort of movie enough that there's really no chance that I won't see this if it gets made.

I never got "homely" out of Weber's descriptions of Harrington at all though the rest looks accurate.
I'm not a devoted fan - I just like the variation on a theme from C S Forester's Horatio Hornblower seriies. Honor being plain in her own opinion might be a better description, but I can't recall the actual wording. I think the books mostly tail off in quality after the first half dozen or so, and I get them muddled up anyway.

Re: Honor Harrington Movie Series Optioned

I'm looking forward to this project with cautious optimism.

As a fan of the books, There are many aspects I'd love to see visually realized on screen.

Most Notable of which include:
-The character of Horace Harkness and the events of Book 7: In Enemy Hands and Book 8: Echoes Of Honor
-The Republic of Grayson and Book 2: The Honor Of The Queen
-And hopefully glances and/or snipets of one Very 'Special' Agent Victor Cachat.
"You fool! You've fallen victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous of which is "Never get involved in a land war in Asia", but only slightly less well known is this - "Never go in against a Sicilian, when death is on the line!"

Re: Honor Harrington Movie Series Optioned

this is hopefully good news. Big fan of the books since Basilisk.

Am very interested to see how the Harkness/Tremaine duo translates to the screen, as they are two of my favorite supporting characters from the series.

Not quite. Honor was rather plain, particularly in comparison to her mother, when she was younger. But she has since blossomed into a very beautiful, if quite tall, young woman. Although she would never be considered pretty. Her ugly duckling period was quite stretched out thanks to the prolong, and she still feels she's unattractive until around the 3rd or 4th book.
That sounds about right, yeah. It's really only in Honor's self-estimation that she might be "homely," and that self-image is definitely part of the character at least in the earlier books. Who compares Honor to her mother? Although the narrative is third person and does jump about clumsily in some scenes, it's pretty definitely Honor herself.
Honor does. She compares herself to her mother. She also uses the term "hatchet-faced horse" to describe herself until Mike Henke starts to set her straight in The Short Victorious War, and Paul Tankersley finishes the job in Field of Dishonor.
