Game of Thrones director Matt Shakman was set to make his feature debut with The Phantom Tollbooth movie adaptation, but now animation filmmaker Carlos Saldanha will take his place. Saldanha directed Rio, Ferdinand and one of the Ice Age films, and will make his live-action feature debut with the film adaptation of Norton Juster’s classic children’s book about a boy who travels to a magical land.

If you watched the Game of Thrones episode “The Spoils of War” earlier this year and thought “Wow, whoever directed this is going to get to make a big movie in the very near future,” congrats. You were right. And it looks like director Matt Shakman will make his big screen debut with an adaptation of the beloved children’s novel The Phantom Tollbooth.
