It has been nearly two years since the last Artemis Fowl book (Artemis Fowl and the Last Guardian) was released, but we get the feeling that it’s certainly not the end for the Artemis Fowl series.
We are getting a steady stream of Artemis Fowl Graphic Novels, and with ‘The Opal Deception‘ being released not long ago and more to hit the shelves over the coming years, there’s certainly enough to keep the fans somewhat… pacified. However, the big question on everyone’s lips (the same question that has been hanging around for nearly 15 years!) is Will there ever be an Artemis Fowl Movie?
The Artemis movie has been in the planning stages for almost 15 years. There have been dozens of scripts, several directors and even casting search through Ireland. As far as I know the studios finally have a script they are happy with and it has been sent to a select few directors. So fingers crossed one of them will sign on the dotted line.
Mr. Colfer also confirmed that ‘The Last Guardian’ was indeed the final Artemis Fowl book, but spin-offs, back-stories and/or continuations could definitely be on the horizon.
I am definitely finished with Artemis but I have always said that there are a few characters that could carry their own book. I was thinking of the Fowl Twins as they grow older and more nefarious, they could discover the fairy world all over again.
Whilst Artemis Fowl’s adventures are most likely over, we may definitely still see more of the wonderful Universe in which he lived. At AFC, we would love to see more of The Butlers (Sounds like a great idea for a sitcom!), Holly Short, and maybe even Mulch Diggum’s shenanigans prior to his first foray into Artemis Fowl’s life.
