Amazon.com is taking over the world!
Not content with selling everything in the world at the cheapest prices, Amazon is teaming up with 20th Century Fox to bring Keith Donahue's fantasy novel, The Stolen Child, to the big screen. The e-tailer has owned the rights to the novel since 2006, but has only just set up the property with Fox, only to be delayed again with the writer's strike.
The book is to be adapted by the talented Ron Nyswaner, the pen behind Philadelphia and The Painted Veil. The material seems like a brilliant fit, as Donahue's novel centers on a man who was kidnapped by hobgoblins in his youth, and replaced with a lookalike. The novel follows both versions of the character as they grapple with their new lives in an unfamiliar world.
