So apparently, Sony just bought the rights to a movie called Winter's Knight, which is yet another one of those 'gritty retelling of classic children's tale' movies (a genre that, to my knowledge, has released exactly zero movies that critics didn't hate). In this case, they're going with Santa+Vikings. I have my doubts as to how well it will work out, but I know it will be worth watching, even if its only to mock it. But hey, best case scenario is we wind up with MFS: the movie (which will still probably not replace Outlander as my favorite Viking-related movie of all time, but I welcome it's challenge).
