Terabithia Director To Direct Independent Fantasy

The next film from Gabor Csupo is to be a UK-Hungarian co-production, The Moon Princess. The screenplay has been adapted from Elizabeth Goudge's novel, The Little White Horse.

Colin Firth is the only cast member named so far, as the Uncle of the story's heroine. The plot will find her entering a magical world - as per Terabithia, after a fashion - and banishing an evil curse.

The budget is pegged at only 25 million. Innovation will need to run high if this is to look as lush as kids are coming to expect.

Casting is already afoot, both in the UK, and Australia/New Zealand.
