More Dark Materials

The Subtle Knife Showing some confidence in their currently shooting fantasy adventure HIS DARK MATERIALS: THE GOLDEN COMPASS, based, of course, on the Phillip Pullman trilogy, New Line has set THE WINGS OF THE DOVE and THE FOUR FEATHERS scribe Hossein Amini (who also wrote the upcoming action thriller KILLSHOT and is currently writing the Hugh Jackman-starring flick DRIVE) to adapt THE SUBTLE KNIFE, the second book in Pullman's fantasy trilogy. Of course, New Line president Toby Emmerich is quick to point out that hiring Amini to adapt the second book is only a tentative move as the decision to greenlight actual production on the film will ultimately depend on how well the film performs at the box office. In this second adventure, Lyra finds herself in a parallel world to her own and encounters Will, a 12 year-old with powers of invisibility and who's in search of his dad. Dramatic adventure-having ensues. THE GOLDEN COMPASS opens December 7th.

Extra Tidbit: Pullman is currently working on a follow-up to the HIS DARK MATERIALS trilogy titled "The Book of Dust".
