Tiger's Apprentice to Roar Into Theaters

19 October 2011 8:56 AM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Laurence Yep's young adult novel "Tiger's Apprentice" is becoming a feature film by the very busy Jane Startz, the former Scholastic exec who produced Ella Enchanted. Tiger's Apprentice is about Asian-American teen Tom Lee who is completely orphaned after his grandmother is killed and finds he is protected by four creatures in the Chinese zodiac, including a mystical tiger. Oscar-nominated scribe David Magee (Finding Neverland, the upcoming Life of Pi) will adapt the book into a screenplay.

The animated film will feature a demographic mostly overlooked by Hollywood: Asian teens in America. The success or failure of this film will likely speak to the future of films made for this audience.

Jane Startz Productions has announced several projects in development recently including Muncle Trogg, The Cold Kiss, The School for Good and Evil and Far Flung Adventures: Fergus Crane.
