The Little Prince, A Movie

Last week, Variety reported that a French film duo will tackle a film production of The Little Prince.

Aton Soumache and Dimitri Rassam will be creating a "stereoscopic 3D animated feature adaptation" of Antione de Saint-Exupery's classic work. According to the article, the pair are set to spend nearly $61 million.

The duo hope to follow the book very closely, focusing on the friendship between a downed pilot and a boy with magic powers. To keep the story as accurate as possible, Saint-Exupery's great-nephew, Olivier d'Agay, has joined the project to advice the producers.

Production should begin in early 2011. Let's hope this movie can live up to the book's amazing repuation; it has been translated into more than 180 languages, and sold more than 80 million copies (as per the Variety article). Thanks to the Friday issue of Shelf Awareness for sharing the original article.
