David Heyman Producing “Night Circus”

“Harry Potter” series producer David Heyman is in negotiations to produce an adaptation of Erin Morgenstern’s “Night Circus” at Summit Entertainment says Heat Vision.

Set in the early 19th century, the story follows two young magicians who are pawns in an age-old rivalry between their mercurial, illusionist fathers, and the enchanted circus where their competition (and romances) play out.

The fate of everyone involved hangs in the duo’s balance. Summit picked up the film rights in January, the book itself hits in September.
