New York -- Tiny Dancer Films is looking to make strange and beautiful music with best-selling cult author/illustrator Daniel Pinkwater, as Jawal Nga's New York-based banner has optioned the Random House fantasy novel "Lizard Music."

Nga ("Married Life") will produce the irreverent tale of Victor, a boy left home alone by his vacationing parents who discovers a group of lizard musicians on late-night television. With the help of a man with a dancing hen under his hat, Victor travels to Thunderbolt City to find the mysterious creatures.

The 1974 young-adult novel is one of more than 100 titles in print from Pinkwater, a frequent contributor to NPR's "All Things Considered" and the subject of two biographies. A favorite among a generation of fans, "Lizard" is published by Random House imprint Dell Yearling.

In addition to the Rachel McAdams-toplined "Married Life," Nga is executive producing Overture's "Last Chance Harvey," starring Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson. »
