Lieber links with ‘Living’

Fox 2000 hires scribe to adapt children’s book

Fox 2000 has tapped scribe Rob Lieber to adapt children’s book “Jeremy Cabbage and the Living Museum of Human Oddballs and Quadruped Delights.”

“Twilight” producer Karen Rosenfelt, who most recently teamed with Fox 2000 on “Marley & Me,” is producing through her Sunswept Entertainment banner.

Story centers on Jeremy Cabbage, a young orphan stuck at Harpwitch’s Home for Mean Dogs, Ugly Cats, and Stray Children, where the canines are treated better than the kids. Jeremy’s only chance is a good adoption, and when that fails, he finds himself on an outrageous adventure out on the city streets.

Penned by best-selling author David Elliott, the book was published by Knopf in March 2008.

Lieber most recently adapted the David Frankel-helmed pic “Septimus Heap: Magyk” for Warner Bros.

He is represented by UTA, Anonymous Content and attorney David Weber.
