‘Here, There Be Dragons’

djdeathskiss sends this along: Warner Bros. Pictures has pre-emptively picked up the rights to Here, There Be Dragons, an upcoming children’s novel by James A. Owen, for David Heyman and David Goyer to produce, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The book brings together three strangers — John, Jack and Charles — in London during World War I, where they become entrusted with the Imaginarium Geographica, an atlas of all the lands that have ever existed in myth and legend, fable and fairy tale. They end up traveling to the Archipelago of Dreams, fighting the dark forces that threaten two worlds. It is later revealed that the three are future fantasy authors J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and Charles Williams, who met in real life at Oxford and enjoyed a competitive friendship.

The book is being launched next week by Simon & Schuster with a massive hardcover printing of 100,000 copies and is one of the company’s big pushes for the year. The plan is to release six more books, one each October.
