Paul King Visits The “Island of the Aunts”

Paul King (“Bunny and the Bull”) is set to direct the fantastical adventure story “Island of the Aunts” reports Deadline.

Edna Walsh is adapting the novel by Eva Ibbotson which follows three aunts who spirit away unloved children and take them to a magical island where they’ll find happiness.

The late Ibbotson also penned “The Great Ghost Rescue” which has been adapted for the screen in a film starring Jason Isaacs, Kevin McKidd and Emma Fielding due out later this year.

King is best known for his work with “The Mighty Boosh” and recently directed segments of British comedy series “Come Fly with Me”.
