Chris Palmer Casts "A Spell for Chameleon"

British commercials veteran Chris Palmer has been tapped to helm Warner Bros. Pictures' movie adaptation of Piers Anthony's "A Spell for Chameleon."


Set to come up with another promising fantasy movie apart from its "Harry Potter" franchise titled "A Spell for Chameleon", Warner Bros. Pictures has appointed British commercials veteran Chris Palmer to direct the project, The Hollywood Reporter has reported.

Adapted from the Piers Anthony novel that kicked off his hugely popular and long-running Xanth novel series, the picture will revolve around a young man living in the magical kingdom of Xanth who gets exiled for having no magical powers but later returns to save the kingdom with his true gift.

Confessing that he likes the book's idea of being in contrast with that of "Harry Potter" series, Palmer is said to have an aim to make the movie as an adult-skewing family movie. No words yet on the cast, but it has been confirmed that Wolfgang Petersen will produce through his Radiant Productions alongside David Benioff.
