ImageMovers and Disney are in talks to team up for the adaptation of The Stoneheart Trilogy, picking up rights for the young-adult fantasy book series by Charlie Fletcher.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the books revolve around a 12-year-old London boy who enters a hidden alternate world where statues, imbued with the soullike essence of their makers, come to life. The boy's presence upsets a balance between good and evil, and while dealing with such creatures as sphinxes and gargoyles, he teams with an orphan girl and the statue of a World War I gunner to try to set things right.
The third Stoneheart book, "Silvertongue," is due in stores next month.
No production date has been set.
