The Fantastical Adventures Of Tolkien And Lewis Will Be Written By...

Merrick here...
Travis Adam Wright, who wrote EAGLE EYE for Orci, Kurtzman, and Spileberg, will adapt James A. Owen's HERE, THERE BE DRAGONS and THE SEARCH FOR THE RED DRAGONS.
So far, "Geographica," which Owen also illustrates, includes four novels revolving around a secret book that contains the unpublished maps and journals of history's most famous author-adventurers. Included as protagonists are a young J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, future giants of the fantasy-adventure genre whose famous works are imagined by Owen to have been inspired by these fictional adventures. Wright said Owen's series is "the best gift any fanboy of Tolkien, Lucas and Spielberg could receive. Here is a character-driven franchise that is both familiar and fresh, where wit and intelligence, not just rifles and regiments, win the day."
...says THR HERE. Fanboys? Way to snap at the hands which might be feeding you... DRAGONS and SEARCH are the first two entries in Owen's ongoing THE CHRONICLES OF THE IMAGINARIUM GEOGRAPHICA, in which four installments have been issued to date . A fifth book is coming in October (all are available HERE) .
