Eoin Colfer's third novel in the W.A.R.P. series, THE FOREVER MAN, is acquired by Stephanie Lurie from Disney-Hyperion from Sophie Hicks at the Sophie Hicks Agency (US & Canada) and by Ben Horslen at Puffin for the UK.
‘Thank goodness we won’t have to leave fans of Eoin’s mind-bending W.A.R.P. series in suspense for much longer! I can’t wait to find out what Ireland’s children’s laureate has in store for Chevie and Riley. We’re tremendously excited about collaborating again with the mastermind behind such unforgettable characters as Artemis Fowl and Albert Garrick.’ Stephanie Owens Lurie, Associate Publisher, Disney-Hyperion
'I'm absolutely thrilled Eoin will be returning to Victorian London for another rip-roaring instalment of W.A.R.P. Although, on the evidence of the first two books, I'm not sure how much of the city will be left standing by the end of the story… We're proud and delighted to be continuing our long relationship with one of Britain and Ireland's most popular children's authors.' Ben Horslen, Editorial Director, Puffin Fiction
The W.A.R.P. series will be a forthcoming Sky drama,
produced by Ruby Films:
‘Ruby Films are delighted to be collaborating with Eoin Colfer and Sky drama to bring the thrills, humour and originality of Chevie and Riley's adventures in WARP, The Reluctant Assassin to a TV audience. We are so excited by Sarah Dollard's screenplay which captures the wit of Eoin's distinct storytelling, beloved by millions of readers all over the world, and promises a modern, international, returnable family drama.’ Ruby Films
