Hagemans play it as it ‘Lies’

Brothers will adapt Lynch fantasy epic

Warner Bros. Pictures has tapped the Hageman brothers to adapt author Scott Lynch’s fantasy epic “The Lies of Locke Lamora.” Michael De Luca and Julie Yorn are producing for the studio.

“Locke Lamora,” the first of a seven-book series, hit the stands earlier this summer in the U.K. and U.S. to glowing reviews.

Storyline revolves around the adventure of a likable con artist as he and his band of followers, the Gentlemen Bastards, navigate the Venice-like city of Camorr.

De Luca will produce through his Michael De Luca Prods. Yorn (“The Exorcism of Emily Rose”) is president of Firm Films.

It’s the second Warners project for Kevin and Dan Hageman. They recently adapted the tome “Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom” for 1492 Pictures, which is producing for the studio.

The writing duo previously was hired by Steven Spielberg to write his original idea, “Charlie Dills,” for DreamWorks. They also penned an English-language remake of Dutch director Dany Deprez’s “Science Fiction” for Sony.
