Kevin Lima, who recently helmed 'Enchanted', is now set to take the helms on Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures' adaption of 'Spook's Apprentice', based on Joseph Delaney's children's book.
Lima flew out to London last week to begin prepping for the upcoming children's fantasy that was originally adapted by Matt Greenberg. Thunder Road's Basil Iwanyk is producing with Lionel Wigram and Lima's producing partner, Chris Chase. Alysia Cotter, who brought the project to the studio before she joined Legendary, is executive producing.
