New Line Cinema Moves Forward With 'Inkheart'
When a power-hungry villain from a rare children’s fable kidnaps Meggie’s father to bring others out of the boundaries of fiction, she and a disparate group of friends both real and magic embark on the kind of adventure she has only read about in books to save him and set things right.
Softley, who most recently directed The Skeleton Key, has previously helmed such films as K-Pax, The Wings of the Dove, and Hackers. Funke will serve as a producer on the project, while the book has been adapted by David Lindsay-Abaire. The film is being planned as an Easter 2007 release.
