In a story from Variety, Bedrock Studios and Arcady Bay Entertainment are going to make a feature adaptation of The Flint Heart, based on Katherine Paterson's fantasy novel.

Arcady Bay head David Paterson (Bridge to Terabithia) is going to adapt his mother's book as a live-action film that will feature many special effects. She also wrote the book for the movie Bridge to Terabithia.

The story follows "a magical amulet that brings power and despair to those who touch it while taking place during a time stretching from the Stone Age to modern day England."

Katherine Paterson wrote the novel with her husband, John Paterson, Sr. The book is set to be released from children's publisher Candlewick Press in early 2011.
