‘Eagle Eye’ Writer To Adapt Himself Some Fantasy

And so, the quest to find the next cinematic successor to “Lord of the Rings” and “Harry Potter” continues!

Travis Adam Wright has been hired to adapt “Here, There Be Dragons” and “The Search for the Red Dragon,” the first two books in James A. Owen’s popular young-adult fantasy series “The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica.”

So far, “Geographica,” which Owen also illustrates, includes four novels revolving around a secret book that contains the unpublished maps and journals of history’s most famous author-adventurers. Included as protagonists are a young J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, future giants of the fantasy-adventure genre whose famous works are imagined by Owen to have been inspired by these fictional adventures.
