Artemis Fowl Movie being developed by Disney with Weinstein and DeNiro producing

Artemis Fowl Movie being developed by Disney with Weinstein and DeNiro producing
Walt Disney Studios is developing a movie based on Eoin Colfer’s series of “Artemis Fowl” books that Harvey Weinstein will produce. “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”-scribe Michael Goldenberg will write the screenplay.

Robert DeNiro and Jane Rosenthal will executive produce the project.

“Artemis Fowl” reunites Weinstein with Walt Disney Studios chief Alan Horn, with whom he worked on “The Aviator,” “Starsky and Hutch” and the animated “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie.

“It is also exciting to partner with friends Alan Bergman, Sean Bailey and of course Bob Iger who has been incredibly generous to me over the years,” Weinstein said. “This is a special project for me because my children absolutely love this book. This story is for everyone and there is no one better than Disney to make a film that will excite people young and old.”

“Artemis Fowl’s” “balance of mystery, adventure and family appeal” makes the books “a natural fit for Disney,” according to Sean Bailey, president, Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Production. “We’re looking forward to collaborating with Harvey on this exciting project.”

The “Artemis Fowl” books have sold more than 21 million copies in print in 44 languages worldwide.
