Christopher Rowley will helm Amber Ent. adaptation

Amber Entertainment has tapped Dominic Monaghan for “Molly Moon” with Christopher Rowley (“Bonneville”) directing an adaptation of Georgia Byng’s fantasy novel about an orphan who learns the art of hypnosis.

Raffey Cassidy will star as Molly. The film is based on a series of children’s books by Byng whose title character has the ability to hypnotize the people around her.

Monaghan will portray a bank robber in search of a valuable, one-of-a-kind book on hypnotism owned by Molly Moon who will do anything he can to steal it from her.

Byng, Lawrence Elman and Ileen Maisel are producing.

Monaghan is currently shooting “Deep Burial” with Tom Sizemore and will host TV series “Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan” premiering on BBC America in January. He was last seen in the independent feature “The Day.”

Monaghan is repped by APA and Morris, Klein, Yorn, Barnes & Levine.
