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.
