Eoin Colfer’s ARTEMIS FOWL Optioned by Disney

This seems like the Summer of SFF film/TV options: Vonda McIntyre’s The Moon And The SunThe Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes…interviews Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs…interviews The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss….and now Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer.

Disney Studios just greenlit a project to bring Colfer’s Artemis Fowl books to film. Producer Harvey Weinstein is leading the project.

Artemis Fowl is a 12-year-old millionaire and criminal mastermind who decides to steal gold from the fairyfolk by kidnapping one of them and holding them for ransom. The trouble is, the fairyfolk here are re quite mean and they do not take too kindly to being ripped off.
