Panay stocks ‘Cupboards’

Producer, Beloved take on film adaptation

Disney-based Andrew Panay (“Wedding Crashers”) has come on to co-produce the feature version of N.D. Wilson’s fantasy trilogy “100 Cupboards” along with Beloved Pictures.

Series centers on a 12-year-old, who discovers that the old farmhouse he calls home harbors mysterious cupboards leading to worlds and dangers beyond his imagination. The trio of titles — “100 Cupboards,” “Dandelion Fire” and “The Chestnut King” — were released by Random House, with the first tome published in 2007.

Development exec Adam Blum brought the project to Panay Films, which recently sold an untitled Bradley Cooper-Allan Loeb pitch to Disney. Panay has also set up “What’s He Got?” at Disney and “T.M.I.” at Universal.

Beloved Pictures is co-producing C.S. Lewis’s “The Great Divorce” with Steve McEveety’s MPower Pictures. N.D. Wilson is adapting “Divorce.”
