Does anyone know if Shadowrun as an intellectual property is being developed for production as a movie, tv series, anime, web show?  Who has the rights to this?  Is there a way to find out?  Not that I am capable of developing it myself, but I can't believe that SOMEONE hasn't shown interest, it would be great as a Syfy live action series I think.  The world is SOOO rich in color.

If I had to make a wild and totally unfounded guess, I'd say everything in the dirction of other media than print was grabbed by Microsoft.
Visit my Deviantart gallery:
And my German SR website with lots of equipment:

Microsoft only owned the electronic rights to Shadowrun when they bought FASA Interactive. They now license the rights to Smith & Tinker.

Media rights are separate from electronic rights and I don't think they've ever been optioned out (still feeling a burn from the BT cartoon...)

Someone send a novel or two to the Anime companies. Someone'll option it and I wouldn't mind seeing SR in my late night Adult Swim lineup. For some reason I'm having visions of Full Metal Alchemist and Dunlkezahn's presidential campaign.
