Here There Be Dragons? Eagle Eye Screenwriter to Adapt The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica
Posted on Monday, April 12th, 2010 by Peter Sciretta
As much as the /Filmcast crew and I want one, we might not ever get a sequel to How To Train Your Dragon. Although, that movie is proving to have legs at the box office, dropping only 14% in its third weekend of release. I guess that might be enough for Hollywood to think they’ve figured out the next great thing – people must love Dragons. And as soon as the mainstream crowds get tired of the aliens phase, they’ll need something to fill the void.
Eagle Eye scribe Travis Wright has been hired to pen an adaptation of Here, There Be Dragons and The Search for the Red Dragon, the first two books in James A. Owen‘s popular young-adult fantasy book series The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica. The Gotham Group is producing the first two feature adaptations with Rick Porras, co-producer of The Lord of the Rings trilogy (which makes sense if you read more into this adaptation).
