Summit Entertainment Buys NIGHT CIRCUS Rights
The rights to NIGHT CIRCUS, the young adult novel from author Erin Morgenstern have been purchased by Summit Entertainment. Summit plans to show the material to directors and writers next week, hoping that they can find someone with a strong opinion of the book.
Night Circus takes place at the turn of the 19th century, and is the story of two young magicians that become a way for their fathers to settle an old rivalry. The children (and their families) are a part of an enchanted circus, and the story plays out in this setting.
Richard Pine, Morgenstern’s publishing agent, will executive produce Night Circus; with Erik Feig and Jeyun Choi of Summit overseeing for the studio. The book is set to hit shelves later this year.
