Eliza Dushku to star in 'The Black Company' series adaptation. She will play The Lady.

WHAT!

OH MY GOD THAT'S PERFECT AND ONE OF MY FAVORITE SERIES OF ALL TIME EXCUSE ME I MUST DO THE DANCE OF JOY
Wow! We hear very little about ELiza Dushku's screen work and her production company and then suddenly they announce this. I haven't read the books but they sound fun.

I'm thrilled that we're finally getting all these high fantasy adaptations. This trend is amazing.
Love those books. If you had asked me for a dream cast list for them Eliza would have been one of the tops 2 or 3 for The Lady. When I first rad this news I had to check the date to make sure it wasn't april 1st somehow. I'm sooooo stoked for this.
Wasn't aware of this book series, but really excited for a new project with Eliza. The article relies heavily on Goyer producing, but with her production company involved I hope she's also an Executive Producer on this.

Som many things we've heard she's been tied to in recent years, really hope this pans out.
Yeah, looks like this one is actually going to go forward though. I mean that could just be my insane level of excitement talking.
Temper all excitement with the fact that no network/streaming service was mentioned. They are simply announcing that they are shopping it.
I enjoyed reading the first book in the series ages ago. As I recall, the story was excellent but the prose was rather lacking, so it would be very worthy of an adaptation.
Well Eliza seems super pumped about it on FB and Twitter. Apprently she is a fan of the books as well.
Now, if we can just get someone to adapt the "Garrett, P.I." series...
