Cherie Priest’s Boneshaker to Shake Up Cinemas

Variety has just reported that Tor Books’s very own Boneshaker is headed to the big screen. Cherie Priest’s steampunk novel has been picked up for production by Cross Creek Pictures, Exclusive Media Group, and Hammer Films.

Boneshaker is the first title in the Clockwork Century series and is followed by Clementine, Dreadnought, and the recently released Ganymede. (Two more books are due in this series: Inexplicables in 2012 and Fiddlehead.)

No word yet on casting or a release date. With this news comes the question: Is Boneshaker poised to be the first high profile steampunk film? Will its release be considered a benchmark for the subgenre’s growth?
