Warner Bros. Pictures has tapped the Hageman brothers to adapt Brit author Scott Lynch's fantasy epic . Michael De Luca and Julie Yorn are producing for the studio, says Variety.

Locke Lamora, the first of a seven-book series, hit the stands earlier this summer in the U.K. and U.S. to glowing reviews. The storyline revolves around the adventure of a likable con artist as he and his band of followers, the Gentlemen Bastards, navigate the Venice-like city of Camorr.
