Walt Disney Pictures and ImageMovers are in negotiations to acquire the screen rights to Stoneheart and its two subsequent sequels. Written by Charlie Fletcher, the trilogy of young-adult books enters on a 12-year-old boy named George who accidentally enters into a parallel reality where good and evil statues can come to life. The third novel, Silvertongue, is arriving on bookstore shelves next month.

ImageMovers is the production company of director Robert Zemeckis. He will produce the Stoneheart film along with company partners Steve Starkey and Jack Rapke.

There was no mention in the Reporter's story of Stoneheart being originally set up at Paramount three years ago. What's almost certain to have happened is that Paramount decided to not renew the rights (and the property went into turnaround) or wasn't given the option to renew, thus attracting the interest of Disney.

Paramount Pictures has bought the screen rights to Stoneheart, the first book in a proposed trilogy by British author Charlie Fletcher. The studio has gone to veteran producers Scott Rudin and Lorenzo di Bonaventura to develop the picture. According to Variety Fletcher will earn somewhere close to a million dollars, not just in selling the movie rights to his novel but also for adapting it into a screenplay.
