A Spell for Chameleon: According to The Hollywood Reporter, writer-director Tim McCanlies will adapt Piers Anthony's fantasy classic "A Spell for Chameleon" into a live-action feature that Wolfgang Petersen and David Benioff are producing for Warner Bros. Pictures.
"Chameleon," which was first published in 1977, made Anthony into a brand-name writer in the fantasy-sci fi world. It grew into a line of 30 books known collectively as the Xanth Development. "Chameleon," the first book in the series, focuses on Bink, a young man who is without magical powers on Xanth, a world where everyone has some sort of powers. Bink will be exiled if he cannot manifest his own magical skills.
