Dreamworks Adapts Children of the Lamp

Dave Guion and Michael Handelman will adapt British author P.B. Kerr’s children’s fantasy novel “Children of the Lamp” for DreamWorks says The Hollywood Reporter.

The “Lamp” series includes four children’s fantasy novels about a family of djinn (a kind of genie) who disguise themselves as humans but can still grant wishes.

Former Disney president Nina Jacobson will produce and “Billy Elliot” scribe Lee Hall penned the earlier draft of the script.
