MUMBAI: David Heyman, producer of Harry Potter, is in talks with the people at Summit to make his next fantastical book adaptation: Night Circus, authored by Erin Morgenstern. In all probability, Heyman will be the producer of the project.
The story of Night Circus is set at beginning of the 19th century and tells the story of two young magicians, pawns in an age-old rivalry between their mercurial, illusionist fathers, and the enchanted circus where their competition (and romances) play out.
The material contains stories of children and their parents magic and an enchanted world to great effect with the Potter movies.
Incidentally, Heyman has produced all the eight Potter films in the Potter movie series, the most successful franchise of all time.
