Warner Bros. Pictures is in final negotiations for the film rights to Donald J. Sobol's iconic kids book series "Encyclopedia Brown".
The story follows Leroy Brown, a local police chief's son who runs his own detective agency out of the family's garage.
Brown and his friend and "bodyguard" Sally Kimball solve petty crimes, usually committed by local bully Bugs Meany.
Sobol penned the books over a five decade period. Roy Lee and Howard David Deutsch will produce.
