Will adapt for Mythology Entertainment
He’ll do so for Mythology Entertainment, a new production outfit spearheaded by Bradley J. Fischer, Laeta Kalogridis and James Vanderbilt. Kalogridis penned Shutter Island and is an uncredited writer on Scream 3. Vanderbilt is responsible for the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man.
Deadline says the Bellairs novels “introduced the orphaned protagonist Lewis as he moves into his uncleâs spooky old Victorian mansion. Strange noises lead the lad to find secret passageways, hidden rooms and the unsettling discovery his peculiar uncle is a warlock. The boy finds his spell book and unwittingly resurrects an evil wizard who sets in motion a chain of supernatural events tied to an ancient secret hidden within the mansionâs walls. After Bellairs died, the series was continued by Brad Strickland.”
