Heyman, who produced all eight adaptations of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, and is currently working on Alfonso Cuarón’s new film Gravity, will produce alongside Heyday Films associate Jeffrey Clifford.

Heyman said of Shadow and Bone: “It’s a riveting and wholly original adventure set in a breathtakingly imaginative world.”

DreamWorks production president Holly Bario said: “We found not just a fantastic story, but one set in a mystical and fascinating world that will translate well to the big screen.

“We are excited to begin adapting this book and look forward to working with David Heyman who has unparalleled proven success in this genre.”
