Kenneth Branagh to Develop Disney’s ‘Artemis Fowl’

“Cinderella” director Kenneth Branagh will reportedly take the reins of Disney’s long-developing adaptation of “Artemis Fowl.”

Debuting in 2001, the the eight-book series follows the adventures of Artemis Fowl, a 12-year-old criminal mastermind who, in the first novel, who hatches a dangerous plot to extort the Fairy People in an attempt to restore his family’s fortune.

Branagh will produce “Artemis Fowl” alongside Harvey Weinstein.
