Sam Fells, who directed the animated Tale of Despereaux (which Bedhead enjoyed in her review), has been tapped to direct a movie based on the young adult novel Demonkeeper, by Royce Buckingham. It's not a bad little premise -- an orphan is raised by some old weirdo who lives in a house filled with demons. The kid is charged with maintaining the house, which, as you can imagine, puts a damper on his social life. Finally he decides to try to get out there and get his ashes hauled, and in doing so a demon called Julie The Beast is released.

And hijinks ensue.

It doesn't fill me with glee, but it doesn't make me want to start cutting throats, either, which these days is pretty much one for the win column, right? No word on actors, but the script is being written by Laeta Kalogridis who has a potentially promising pedigree (though I doubt my gift for alluringly amusing alliteration) -- she also wrote the scripts for Scorcese's Shutter Island (based on the Dennis Lehane novel) and Cameron's Battle Angel (which is somewhere between next and a millionth on his slate).

We'll see.
