Book View Cafe is reporting that Vonda McIntyre’s The Moon and the Sun is being adapted for film, with Pierce Brosnan playing Louis XIV.
The synopsis from Screen Daily:
The fantasy-adventure centres on imagined events during the reign of King Louis XIV as the French leader’s bid for immortality leads him to capture and attempt to steal the life force from a mermaid, to be played by rising Chinese star Fan Bingbing.
Complications arise when the Sun King’s 18-year-old illegitimate daughter Marie-Josephe falls for the mermaid’s keeper and risks everything trying to set him and the mythical creature free.
Sean McNamara (Soul Surfer) will direct The Moon And The Sun. Bill Mechanic will adapt the novel with co-writers Barry Berman, James Schamus and Laura Harrington.
