Amazon.com is breaking into the film industry by heading into production of The Stolen Child, which is based on the fantasy novel by Keith Donahue. Variety reports the Seattle-based corporation optioned the rights late 2006 and had screenwriter Ron Nyswaner penning the screenplay but the WGA strike caused the production to stall. With it over, Amazon will be teaming with 20th Century Fox to bring this fantasy novel to the big screen. Marc Platt is on board to produce.
Plot Concept: Story revolves around a man who was kidnapped by hobgoblins as a boy and replaced by a look-alike imposter. The book follows both versions of the character as they struggle through their new lives and environments.
