‘Airman’ flies to Peacock

Writer to adapt novel for Disney, ImageMovers

Scribe Ann Peacock will pilot the adaptation of the novel “Airman” for Disney and Robert Zemeckis’ ImageMovers.

Gil Kenan is directing and Zemeckis, Jack Rapke and Steve Starkey are producing the $150 million motion-capture fantasy adventure through their ImageMovers banner.

Based on a book by Eoin Colfer, story centers on Connor, a boy who lives on an island off the coast of Ireland, where his father is the king’s bodyguard. When the king is murdered, Conor is blamed for the crime and thrown into prison where he passes the solitary months designing a flying machine that he will use to save his family.

Jackie Levine is overseeing the project for ImageMovers.

Peacock, who is best known for penning the adaptation of “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” recently sold the tentpole “Odysseus” to Warner Bros. in a bidding war, with Jonathan Liebesman directing and the Hollywood Gang producing. Her screenplay for the Justin Chadwick-helmed drama “The First Grader” is in pre-production for the BBC.

She is repped by CAA, Principato-Young and attorney Don Steele.
