In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Travis Wright is going to adapt Here, There Be Dragons and The Search for the Red Dragon, the first two books in James A. Owen's fantasy series The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica.

The Gotham Group will produce the feature adaptations, with Rick Porras (co-producer of The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring) also producing. Warner Bros. is going to distribute the films.

The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica contains four novels set around a very secret book that has the unpublished maps and journals of history's most famous author-adventurers. The protagonists in the story are a young J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, themselves future giants of the fantasy-adventure genre whose famous works are imagined by Owen to have inspired these fictional adventures.
