Here, There Be Dragons To Be Made Into A Feature Film

What if J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis were young adventurers together?
Heat Vision is reporting that Travis Wright (Eagle Eye) is going to adapt Here, There Be Dragons and The Search for the Red Dragon, the first two books in James A. Owen's fantasy series The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica. Simon and Shuster will be releasing the fifth book of a seven part series later this fall. The movie is slated to be released late next year.

The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica contains four novels set around a very secret book that has the unpublished maps and journals of history's most famous author-adventurers. The protagonists in the story are a young J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, themselves future giants of the fantasy-adventure genre whose famous works are imagined by Owen to have inspired these fictional adventures.

Travis Wright called the series "the best gift any fanboy of Tolkien, Lucas and Spielberg could receive. Here is a character-driven franchise that is both familiar and fresh, where wit and intelligence, not just rifles and regiments, win the day."

The Gotham Group will produce the feature adaptations, with Rick Porras (co-producer of The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring) also producing. Warner Brothers is going to distribute the films.
