Irish 'Potter'-style book gets pub, film deal

NEW YORK — “Artemis Fowl,” the children’s book with “Harry Potter” overtones that has been touted as one of the hot properties at the Frankfurt Book Fair, has been taken off the market for both publishing and film.

Miramax and Tribeca Prods. have teamed up for a film option, and Talk Miramax will publish the book in North America. The screen deal’s worth an unspecified six-figures.
