WHAT WE KNOWEdit
A film version of The Books of Magic has been in development hell for many years. It was originally optioned "by Warners some years before the first Harry Potter (a series which has been frequently compared to this series) book was published", with Neil Gaiman signing on as executive producer in 1998. After several years of drafting and redrafting, the script moved so far from the original concept that Gaiman and Paul Levitz advised the filmmakers that any audience seeing it expecting a film based on the comic would be disappointed, and decided to develop the movie themselves. They worked with screenwriter Matt Greenberg, who had written early drafts of the original script, to come up with some closer to the original story. As yet, no adaption has been filmed or scheduled for release.
