“Dope” director Rick Famuyiwa has signed on to direct a film adaptation of Tomi Adeyemi’s novel “Children of Blood and Bone” for Fox 2000 and Temple Hill.
The story is set in a magic-infused kingdom named Orisha, where a young woman named Zelie Adebola witnesses the death of her mother and other magicians under the order of a ruthless king.
The woman has a chance to restore magic to her land but has to first team up with a rogue princess and outwit and outrun a crown prince while avoiding prowling snow ‘leoponaires’ and vengeful spirits that wait in the waters.
David Magee wrote the script adapting the book while Famuyiwa, Marty Bowen, Isaac Klausner, John Fischer and Karen Rosenfelt will produce.
