Artemis Fowl

Five years ago, Disney began working on an adaptation of Artemis Fowl based on author Eoin Colfer’s book series of the same name. The film, described as Die Hard with fairies, follows a young criminal mastermind who gets in over his head when he kidnaps a fairy.

Now the studio’s newest live-action film from Cinderella and Murder on the Orient Express director Kenneth Branagh has a trailer. Check it out below along with a new poster.

Illegal by Eoin Colfer

Illegal
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle | Audiobook
Written by Eoin Colfer and Andrew Donkin
Art by Giovanni Rigano
Publisher: Sourcebooks Jabberwocky
Release Date: August 7, 2018

When you mention the words graphic novel, most people assume you are going to be talking about superheroes or fantasy themes. There are, however, a wide range of genres that are in no way connected to mutants, space creatures, science experiments, and the like. Sometimes, authors use sequential art to reach new fans or tell their stories in a new way. Illegal definitely falls into this latter category, as I will explain below.

Our main character is named Ebo, a 12-year-old boy from a poorer than poor village in Ghana. This is his story of how he attempts to escape the shackles of poverty and make a new life for himself and his family in Europe. The best laid plans do not always work, unfortunately. The tale begins in the middle, but we get to jump back and see the events that started our young protagonist on his path to a new life.

Artemis Fowl

Disney is getting ready to try to bring author Eoin Colfer‘s book series Artemis Fowl to life once again in a live-action adaptation. The studio teamed up with The Weinstein Company back in 2013 for the project, but making the movie happen has proven difficult. The Weinsteins first acquired the rights to adapt, when they were Miramax, around when the first book came out back in 2001 before Disney bought the company and they went on to found TWC.

Now comes word that they’ve brought in Thor and Cinderella director Kenneth Branagh to develop and direct the movie. It’s also being reported that Irish playwright Conor McPherson is in talks to pen a new screenplay for the movie.

Penguin has launched the cover for And Another Thing…, the new sequel to Douglas Adams‘ classic series Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

It was announced in September 2008 that Eoin Colfer, best-selling author of the Artemis Fowl novels, would pen the sixth Hitchhiker’s novel, to be published in October 2009.

Adams, whose final Hitchhiker’s novel was 1992’s Mostly Harmless, had said in interviews that he’d like to do a new Hitchhiker’s novel that would truly end the series.

‘I suspect at some point in the future I will write a sixth Hitchhiker book … I would love to finish Hitchhiker on a slightly more upbeat note. Five seems to be a wrong kind of number, six is a better kind of number.’
