Artemis Fowl teams up with Mickey Mouse.

I’m sure you’ve seen this book around the library, right? If you have then I have some news for you.. if you haven’t, well you will surely know about it.

“Artemis Fowl” is the bestselling sci-fi/fantasy series by Eoin Colfer follows the adventures of Artemis Fowl II, a 12-year-old whiz kid from a high-flying crime family.

The live-action movie is currently in development at Disney, with Harvey Weinstein on board as a producer. Weinstein snagged the rights to “Artemis Fowl” in 2000 when he was the head of Miramax with his brother Bob. Weinstein and Disney are friends but it got unpleasant after Miramax was sold to Disney.

“Artemis Fowl” will be adapted by Michael Goldenberg, who wrote “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” “Peter Pan,” and “Contact.” De Niro and Rosenthal will serve as executive producers.
