Trademark Films has acquired the film rights from Scholastic to Chris Wooding’s teen fantasy novel The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray, reports Screen Daily.
“Set in a Victorian London of the future which is inhabited by ghouls and demons, the story centres around a young witch hunter whose mission is to protect a girl under threat.”
Investor turned producer Ivan Mactaggart, who joined Trademark from financing company BMS as a partner (alongside David Parfitt) in December last year, told Screen that the project “inhabits a world somewhere between ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Underworld.’ There are two beautiful young things at the heart of it, and it has real franchise potential.”
