More fantasy films on the way
Everyone seems to be chasing the next Harry Potter, and Warner Bros., who produce the box office-busting films (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix took in an estimated $44.2 million in its first full day in the US alone) are no exception. They've just picked up the movie rights to Septimus Heap, a popular seven-book fantasy series by author Angie Sage, from publisher HarperCollins.
Ctnopsis reports the movie adaptation of Septimus Heap: Magyk, the first book title in the series, will be produced by Karen (Devil Wears Prada) Rosenfelt with author Sage serving as executive producer.
Magyk was published in March 2005, followed by the second and third books, Septimus Heap: Flyte and Septimus Heap: Physik, which were published in March 2006 and March 2007 respectively.
