Fox Animation Plans to Weave 'Anubis Tapestry'
Fox Animation has obtained a production option for Bruce Zick’s young-adult book The Anubis Tapestry: Between Twilights.
Fox plans a loose adaptation of the 2006 novel, which begins with a mummy’s curse condemning Dr. George Henry’s spirit to the Egyptian Underworld. Henry’s son Chance plumbs the depths of the Underworld and encounters a variety of monsters while trying to free him.
Zick is no stranger to the world of film animation, having worked on such projects as Finding Nemo, The Road to El Dorado and A Bug’s Life. He also penciled 10 issues of “Thor” for Marvel Comics and has produced comics for Dark Horse as well.
