The live-action feature will be based on the first and second installments in Disney Publishing Worldwide's best-selling children’s fiction series by author Eoin Colfer. "Artemis Fowl" is about a 12-year-old Artemis who is a millionaire, a genius - and above all, a criminal mastermind. But Artemis doesn’t know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy (Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit) to harness her magic to save his family. These aren't the fairies of the bedtime stories - they're dangerous. The "Artemis Fowl" book series currently has more than 21 million copies in print in 44 languages worldwide.
