Congrats to friends of DelToroFilms, Christopher Golden and Tom Sniegoski:
Universal has acquired screen rights to the young adult fantasy novel series “Outcast” and set Charlie Mitchell to write the script.
Mitchell will produce with Donaldson/Sanders’ Peter Donaldson and Circle of Confusion’s Jason Lust.
The “Outcast” books, by Christopher Golden and Thomas Sniegoski, explore a young adult world of magic a la “Harry Potter” and “Shadowmancer” (the latter also is being developed by Universal).
“Outcast” takes place in Arcanum, where everyone except a young boy named Timothy possesses some magical power.
