Deep breaths, everyone. Compose yourselves.
After over a decade in development, with false starts, disputes and any number of other delays – it looks like it might, just might, be happening.
According to Variety’s sources, Kenneth Branagh (that’s SIR Kenneth Branagh to you and me!) has signed on to develop and direct Disney’s movie adaptation of ARTEMIS FOWL. Irish playwright Conor McPherson is in talks to pen the script.
Sir Branagh is no stranger to YA film adaptations, having starred as Professor Gilderoy Lockhart in the Harry Potter series – so here’s to hoping that he delivers with the movie we’ve been waiting for for close to 15 years!
