Thor Freudenthal up for Measle and the Wrathmonk

Warner Brothers has attached Hotel For Dogs director Thor Freudenthal to develop Measle And The Wrathmonk, based on Ian Ogilvy’s book trilogy.

Measle finds a young boy sent to with his uncle who – surprise! – turns out to be a wizard. Yep, Warners is still hunting for that elusive new Potter cash cow.

The studio nabbed the rights four years ago and has been trying to get it made since, according to Variety .

Agnes Quill

If Freudenthal decides that the film is worth making, he’ll decide between it and making the adaptation of graphic novel Agnes Quill: An Anthology Of Mystery for Paramount first.

We’re spotting a theme here for Freudenthal – looks like he’s chasing magic in a big way.
