Film Adaptation of Larklight by Philip Reeve Gets New Director

Larklight by Philip Reeve
More information about the book

The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog is reporting that Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) will direct a film adaptation of the young adult space adventure Larklight by Philip Reeve.

In Larklight -- the first of three books in the series -- Art Mumsby and his irritating sister Myrtle live with their father in a huge and rambling house called Larklight … that just happens to be traveling through outer space. When a visitor arrives, it is far from an innocent social call. Before long Art and Myrtle are off on an adventure to the furthest reaches of space, where they will do battle with evil forces in order to save each other -- and the universe.

The other two books in the series are Starcross and Mothstorm.
