Kingkiller Chronicles - A Possible New Fantasy Movie?

Not since J.R.R Tolkien's Lord of The Rings have any newepic fantasy movie that has dominate the box office and as a epic fantasy book reader, I been thing thinking which among the latest fantasy books can Hollywood adapt into a movie and then came to mind Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Chronicles.

For the those who don't know, the Kingkiller Chronicles telling the autobiography of Kvothe (pronounced like "Quothe" but with a v), an adventurer, arcanist, and famous musician. The plot is divided into two different action threads: the present, where Kvothe tells the story of his life to Devan Lochees (known as Chronicler) and Kvothe's past, where most of the story is located. 

Having reading the first two books, The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear, the story has some elements of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series (during the time when the protagonist tell his story during his time on the university learning the "arcane arts) and some impression of Anne Rice's Interview with a Vampire (the concept of the protagonist telling his autobiography).

I'm not sure if any Hollywood film production has acquired any film right to this story but surely enough once mr. Rothfuss complete the the trilogy, it won't be long that a film adaptation will be on the works.
