Universal Acquires Rights to Outcast

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.
