Thompson tames 'Lionboy' script for DreamWorks

16 April 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Edward Scissorhands scribe Caroline Thompson has been hired to adapt the high-profile project Lionboy for DreamWorks and studio-based producers Team Todd. Thompson, who will receive high-six against low-seven figures, will pen a screenplay based on the novel written by Louisa Young and her daughter Isabelle. It's set in London in the near future and centers on a boy named Charlie Ashanti who was scratched by a leopard when he was a baby and thus can communicate with cats. As a child, he teams up with a band of circus lions to track down his parents, who have been kidnapped. Lionboy, which has drawn comparisons to Harry Potter, is the first of three books in a series and is expected to launch a franchise for the studio. The latter two books have yet to be published and are still untitled. The tone and genre of the book are said to fit into Thompson's body of work, which includes such family adventure and fantasy films as The Addams Family, The Secret Garden, Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Team Todd sisters Suzanne and Jennifer Todd will produce Lionboy. At the studio, production executive Claire Rudnick-Polstein is overseeing. Thompson is repped by ICM and attorney Walter Teller. »
