Kazu Kibuishi's Amulet could have a new future on the silver screen, according to Deadline. The film rights to the best-selling young adult graphic novel series have been picked up by 20th Century Fox working in partnership with Temple Hill Entertainment, which produced the Twilight series.

The Amulet series began in 2008 with Amulet: The Stonekeeper, introducing its protagonist Emily, a young girl who enters another world of man-eating demons, elves, giant robots, and more. Amulet has been a critical and commercial success (see "Top 10 Kids/Tweens GN Franchises-Spring 2015"), winning the American Library Association's award for Best Book for Young Adults and selling more than 2 million copies worldwide. The seventh book in the series is due in February 2016.

The new deal moves the project from Warner Bros., where it was in development by Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment beginning in 2008. The last news of that adaptation was a script written by Rob Edwards in 2011 (see “'Amulet' Movie Gets Writer”).
