David Heyman circles ‘The Night Circus’

Harry Potter producer in negotiations for Summit project

David Heyman, producer on all eight Harry Potter films, is in negotiations to produce an adaptation of Erin Morgenstern’s yet-to-published debut novel “The Night Circus.”

Summit had no comment Wednesday. Warner Bros.’ final Potter film, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” opens Friday amid sky-high expectations.

“Night Circus” is centered on two young illusionists battling out their fathers’ age-old rivalry amidst an enchanted circus, bound by a fated love, and destined to affect the lives of all around them.

The book will be published by Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group in September. It generated significant notice during last year’s Frankfurt Book Fair.

Richard Pine, Morgenstern’s publishing agent, will exec produce.
