Summit Entertainment Joins the Night Circus


Summit Entertainment bought the movie rights to Night Circus, a manuscript for a young adult novel from first-time writer Erin Morgenstern.

According to Heat Vision, “the novel is set at the turn of the 19th century, telling the story of two young magicians, pawns in an age-old rivalry between their mercurial, illusionist fathers, and the enchanted circus where their competition (and romances) play out. Fates of everyone involved – from creators and performers to patrons hang in the duo’s balance.”

The book will be published later this year.
