“Artemis Fowl” headed to the big screen

ImageDisney and its longs-estranged former partners, The Weinsteins, will bring the popular children’s book series “Artemis Fowl” to the screen, according to a report in THR.

The eight sci-fi books by Eoin Colfer, about a teenage criminal mastermind, were a part of the Weinstein’s going away package when they parted ways with the Mouse. A Disney exec with Harry Potter picture ties, and the screenwriter of one of the Potter films are also involved.

So we see where this is going and what Disney’s ambitions for it are.
