Warner Bros. and Legendary have confirmed Kevin Lima (Enchanted) to direct Spook's Apprentice, a project once considered by Tim Burton and Johnny Depp as a reteaming venture.

According to Variety, Lima and the Spook's Apprentice producing team flew to London last week to work on the adaptation of Joseph Delaney's children's tome, first in a six-part series, about a 13-year-old boy who learns about wizardry.
