Christopher Rowley To Direct MOLLY MOON, Raffey Cassidy To Star As The Lead!

The art of hypnosis. Sounds promising! We’ve just learned that folks from Amber Entertainment are quite serious about the adaptation of Georgia Byng‘s fantasy novel Molly Moon. They even have a director for the whole thing – Bonneville helmer Christopher Rowley! And like that’s enough for the beginning, we also know that young and sweet Raffey Cassidy (remember her from Snow White and the Huntsman, right?) is all set to play that Molly girl!

So, as you probably know, Byng’s fantasy novel titled Molly Moon’s Incredible Book of Hypnotism, centers on an orphan girl named Molly, who finds a mysterious old book on hypnotism and discovers she can make people do whatever she wants. But a sinister stranger will do anything to steal her secret.

Byng also stands behind the script, which she co-wrote with Chris Hurford, with a polish by Tom Butterworth.

And, what’s also interesting about the whole thing is that, beside young Cassidy, some great names are also in talks to join this project.

According to the latest reports, Janet McTeer is in negotiations to play the head of the orphanage, while Joan Collins, Charles Dance and Trudie Styler are also circling the roles.

Shooting on Molly Moon should start in London on October 29th.


What do you think?

    I can’t believe it…. I began reading the series in 3rd grade. It was my all time favorite, and it was my dream for it to become a movie! i had to stop reading after the 4th book, because the school library only had 1-4. Then i moved and changed schools but in the same district and the library had the 5th. I was so excited that the series wasn’t going to stop for me! I am experiencing that situation right now as i type this because our middle school reading teacher is assigning us a book report where we write a letter to the author about how we love their books. I had forgot her name so i typed in Molly Moon on the computer and it took me to a website where i learned that a new book, Molly Moon and the Monster Music, Is going to come out in February 26, 2013!!! Now i found out that the series is going to become produced just like my second and 3rd favorite series, Hunger Games and Harry Potter! Now i have much more excitement and praise to put in my book report… Georgia Byng’s series of Molly Moon will forever be in my heart! :) :) :) :) :D :D :D :D
