After announcing back in February that they planned to adapt Scott Lynch's fantasy epic The Lies of Locke Lamora, Warner Bros has only just now found scribes capable of the job.
Hagemans to Adapt The Lies of Locke Lamora
According to Variety, Warner Bros. Pictures has tapped the Hageman brothers to adapt Brit author Scott Lynch's fantasy epic The Lies of Locke Lamora.
The Lies of Locke Lamora, the first of a seven-book series, hit the stands earlier this summer in the U.K. and U.S. to glowing reviews.
The story to Locke Lamora revolves around the adventures of a likable con artist named Locke Lamora as he and his band of followers, the Gentleman Bastards, navigate the Venice-like city of Camorr.
Kevin and Dan Hageman have a small history of writing projects including another adaptation for Warner Bros. -- Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom. Besides adaptations, the duo was previously hired by Steven Spielberg to write his original idea, Charlie Dills, for DreamWorks.
