Gil Kenan directing Airman

Robert Zemeckis just can't stop finding books to turn into motion capture films - his latest project is having Gil Kenan turn Eoin Colfer's Airman into a film.

Colfer's story follows Connor, a lad living on an island off the coast of Ireland, where is father makes a living protecting the king.

But then the ruler is murdered, Connor is blamed and he's thrown into prison. He spends his time alone designing a flying machine he can use to escape and save his family.

Zemeckis is producing the film and Kenan - who worked on Monster House and last helmed City Of Ember - will direct the movie from Ann Peacock's script.
