David Weber Announces Honor Harrington Movie Deal. All I can say is HOT DAMN!! I'm on about the 7th book. This could be really good or really bad depending on how it's handled. The movie will be based on the first book in the series, On Basilisk Station. All I have to do is wait a couple years now. Jan 2017 Update: As the movie deal seems to have evaporated, changed the thread title to allow for other discussion about this book series.
