"Kyle XY" creator Eric Bress has been tapped to pen for New Line Cinema's "The Alchemyst: Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel."
Marking a significant step in its development on "The Alchemyst: Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel", New Line Cinema has hired "Kyle XY" creator Eric Bress to work on the script of the project, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed.
An adaptation of Michael Scott's first book in "The Immortal Nicholas Flamel" series, the fantasy feature follows a pair of teenage fraternal twins as they find themselves caught up in an age-old battle between good and evil when Flamel loses a magical book containing spells that could destroy the world.
Names to direct and star up to this time still remain a mystery, but it has been confirmed that Mark Burnett is onboard to produce through his eponymous production shingle. Burnett, who reportedly secured the book series rights in an auction held last year using his own money, has been known to be a prominent figure behind a series of reality shows on TV like "The Apprentice", "Survivor", "Rock Star: INXS", and "The Contender."
