Good Universe Acquires Film Rights to ‘Angelfall’
According to The Hollywood Reporter, new film company Good Universe, co-founded by former Lionsgate president Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane, has acquired the multifilm rights to the book series Penryn & The End of Days by Susan Ee.
The first book in the series, Angelfall, was just re-released by Amazon Children’s Publishing in August 2012 after Ee self-published the ebook.
Sam Raimi (director of the Spider-Man trilogy and Oz, The Great and Powerful) and Rob Tapert will produce while Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane will executive produce.
“Susan is a brilliant writer”, Raimi said. “She has created a fantastic world with instantly engaging and real characters. I immediately connected with the material and knew that she had conceived the perfect combination for a great fantasy film.”
