NEW BOOK ADAPTATIONS: HULU TO TURN ISABEL ALLENDE'S 'HOUSE OF THE SPIRITS' INTO TV SERIES, GEORGE R.R. MARTIN'S 'ICE DRAGON' TO BECOME ANIMATED MOVIE, 'BLACK BEAUTY' GETS NEW MOVIE VERSION

   'THE HOUSE OF THE SPIRITS'
TO BECOME A TV SERIES AT HULU
The book has been sold in 70 million copies
A number of adaptations I forgot to inform you about earlier this week! First of all, Isabel Allende's famous classic THE HOUSE OF THE SPIRITS, which was already made into a movie with Meryl Streep, Jeremy Irons, Vanessa Redgrave, Antonio Banderas and Glenn Close some twenty years ago, will be turned into a TV series by Hulu! The book which was sold in more than 70 million copies to date has been translated in almost 40 different languages following the triumphs and tragedies of three generations of the rich rancher Trueba family in Chile over the twentieth century.

   NEW 'BLACK BEAUTY'
 MODERN MOVIE ADAPTATION
Black Beauty will get a modern reimagining
Another period set literary classic that is getting a new more modern movie adaptation is Anna Sewell's popular novel BLACK BEAUTY! Ashley Avis is set to direct the movie which will put the events from the 1877 book into a modern setting following Jo Green, a teenager who recently lost her parents, and who is sent to live with her uncle at a horse and animal sanctuary on Long Island. She eventually bonds with the wild Black Beauty, who was similarly taken away from her family when her mustang herd was captured in the West.

    'THE ICE DRAGON'
GEORGE R.R. MARTIN'S BOOK TO BECOME ANIMATED ADVENTURE
Ice Dragon will be turned into an animated feature
But if you're more into fantasy, despair not, as another of George R. R. Martin's books will be adapted for the big screen. His 1980's children's books THE ICE DRAGON will be turned into a feature animated adventure! Martin will also produce the story set in a world of medieval fantasy where warring kingdoms harness the power of fire breathing dragons. It’s the story of a young girl named Adara, who secretly befriends a rare Ice Dragon. When the invading army of dragons invade her city, only the Ice Dragon can help her save their world from utter destruction.
