‘Phantom Tollbooth’ Movie in the Works From TriStar

A film adaptation of the beloved children’s novel “The Phantom Tollbooth” is in the works from TriStar Pictures.

Written by Norton Juster and illustrated by Jules Feiffer,” the 1961 fantasy follows Milo, a bored boy who takes a trip into a mystical land full of wordplay and adventure. The book has since become a widely acclaimed piece of children’s literature and a presence in many elementary school classrooms.

According to The Tracking Board, the project will be written by Michael Vukadinovich (“The Three Misfortunes of Geppetto”) and produced by Donald De Line (“The Italian Job”) for De Line Pictures and Ed McDonnell (“Prisoners”) of Maple Shade Films.

The project has been in development for a long time now, originally at Warner Bros., where Gary Ross (“The Hunger Games”) was set to direct from a script by Alex Tse (“Watchmen”).
