Sir Elton John’s Rocket Pictures is reteaming with Gnomeo & Juliet writer/director Kelly Asbury to adapt Derek Keilty’s ” Will Gallows and the Snake-Bellied Troll.” The book is described as follows by Anderson Press:
Will Gallows, a young elfling sky cowboy, rides out on a perilious quest to bring the evil snake-bellied troll bandit, Noose Wormworx, to justice. Noose is wanted for the murder of Will’s pa – the former deputy sheriff of Oretown.
Will’s journey takes him deep into the heart of the West-Rock, to the dark underground city of Deadrock, where he soon uncovers a deadly secret that could spell disaster not only for Oretown, but for the whole of the West-Rock.
The movie will reportedly have strong musical elements. “It’s a classic cowboy story for kids, set in an amazing world,” John said. “We think family audiences will love it.”
