Robert Zemeckis will produce a Gil Kenan-directed adaptation of, Wexford native, Eoin Colfer's book Airman. Kenan is responsible for the underrated CGI Movie Monster's House, and also spent a few months in Belfast shooting the enjoyable kiddie romp, City of Ember. Colfer is a hugely successful writer, who came extremely close to having his bestselling series, Artemis Fowl, brought to the big screen. According to Variety, this one "centres on Connor, a boy who lives on an island off the coast of Ireland, where his father is the king's bodyguard. When the king is murdered, Conor is blamed for the crime and thrown into prison where he passes the solitary months designing a flying machine that he will use to save his family." It will reportedly be a huge $150 million motion capture movie, ala Zemeckis' previous three productions. Finally, a huge Irish-themed production and it'll all probably be shot in studio. Dang.
