    FOX GOES FOR ANOTHER A LA HARRY POTTER SOURCES


    Fox 2000 recently had Percy Jackson rolled into the cinemas and so far has grossed more than US$ 71 million on the stateside. Latest development was (it is not about the Pecry Jackson' sequel though) that Fox 2000 has won a bidding war with at least two other studios for the rights to make a big screen adaptation for Catherine Fisher's Incarceron.

    Incarceron which was released in the UK in 2007 and is one on New York Times Bestsellers List. In fact a sequel, Sapphique, was released a year later. It sets to affirm that Fox is hoping to turn their attention over the young-adult dystopian fantasy into a franchise. To make a complete trilogy out of it, we hope Fisher would have write a third one too!

    This is how the plot detail looks like: "The book tells the story of a seventeen-year-old boy named Finn, a descendant of the original prisoners, tries to escape an elaborate futuristic prison world. In the outer world, Claudia, daughter of the Warden of Incarceron, is trapped in her own form of prison a futuristic world constructed beautifully to look like a past era, the 17th century, but run by computers."

    It was reported also that Hugh Jackman's Seed Productions has been tasked with overseeing the film's development. No director and writers are attached yet but Jackman and John Palermo are definitely looking for one.
