Based on Khalil Gibran's best known fictional work. "The Prophet" is being adapted for the big screen in a new production that will involve collaborations across many borders. In this adaptation, each of the 89-year old classic's chapters will be directed by a different award-winning filmmaker, with Roger Allers ("The Lion King") responsible for the connective through-line narrative. "The Prophet" is one of the best-selling books of all time, having sold over 100 million copies since its original publication in 1923. The Lebanese-born Gibran is the third most-read poet in history, after Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu, and has been translated in to more than 40 languages.
