Tomb Raider Scribes Pen Merlin Prequel

“Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” scribes Patrick Massett and John Zinma have been hired to pen an adaptation of T.A. Barron’s young-adult novel series “The Lost Years of Merlin” for Disney Pictures.

The book follows a teen who will one day be the powerful mage who sits at the right hand of King Arthur. But first he has many lessons to master, including how to temper his darker leanings and his pride.

Other characters include a spirit world warlord, a wannabe jester and a female companion with much of the action happening on the enchanted isle of Fincayra.

The likes of Miramax, Paramount and Warner Brothers attempted to adapt the property before with little success.
