Following his hit with Bridge to Terabithia, Gabor Csupo has chosen The Moon Princess, another live-action family fantasy, as his next directing project.
Variety says “Princess,” which is likely to shoot this summer as a U.K.-Hungarian co-production, is based on the children’s book “The Little White Horse.” It’s the story of a 13-year-old girl’s adventure into a magical world from which she must banish an ancient curse.
Colin Firth is set to star as the girl’s eccentric uncle, with other cast yet to be announced.
Csupo commented, “‘Moon Princess’ is a magical new family film, an absolutely beautiful, dark and mysterious story.”
Lucy Shuttleworth and Graham Alborough wrote the adaptation of Elizabeth Goudge’s classic novel.
