New Line Cinema has hired Hossein Amini to write the script of "His Dark Materials: The Subtle Knife."


It's still some months more before the fans of fantasy flicks can see "The Golden Compass" in theaters yet New Line Cinema has already embarked on progress to develop its sequel, "His Dark Materials: The Subtle Knife", on the big screen.

Variety reveals that the studio has successfully picked up "The Wings of the Dove" writer Hossein Amini to work on the screenplay for the second installment of the franchise. The site also learns that the move comes as the company is in the midst of a five-month shoot on "Compass" at Shepperton Studios in London.

Amini, an Iranian-born screenwriter of British nationality, has been widely known for his talent in adapting literary works to film features. He is currently penning script for Universal Pictures' "Drive" with Hugh Jackman attached to star and Marc Platt producing.
