Disney has picked up the rights to “The Night Gardener,” the 2014 children’s novel by Jonathan Auxier.
The follow-up to Auxier’s debut novel “Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes,” “The Night Gardener” is a Victorian ghost story that follows two abandoned Irish siblings who travel to work as servants at a creepy, crumbling English manor house. However, the house and its family are not quite what they seem, and soon the children are confronted by a mysterious specter and an ancient curse that threatens their lives.
According to Variety, the film will be developed by Sean Bailey’s live-action division, with Auxier himself writing the script. Jim Whittaker will produce.
