According to Variety, a movie version of the story is finally on the way, under the guidance of kid-friendly Walden Media and 20th Century Fox. Though an early draft of the screenplay was written by Todd Alcott, Walden have asked Vadim Perelman (who wrote and directed House of Sand and Fog) to do a rewrite; Perelman will then direct the film from his own script. It's going to be utterly fascinated to see how faithful the resulting film is to the book - will Walden risk offended the same audiences who flocked to their The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe earlier this year?
