‘Circus Mirandus’ Movie in the Works at Stone Village

Stone Village Productions’ Scott Steindorff and Dylan Russell have preemptively acquired film and TV rights to Cassie Beasley’s debut novel “Circus Mirandus.”

The magic-themed story follows Micah Tuttle and his friend Jenny, who set off on an adventure to find the mysterious Circus Mirandus and its greatest magician in an effort to save Micah’s dying grandfather.

Stone Village said the story should appeal to fans of “Peter Pan,” “Big Fish” and the work of Roald Dahl. The producers are meeting with writers and directors for the film adaptation.

“Circus Mirandus” has been set for publication in June through Penguin. Beasley’s second novel in the franchise is due in 2016.

Steindorff’s producing credits include “Lincoln Lawyer,” “Jane Got a Gun” and “Love in the Time of Cholera.” He exec produced “Chef,” the TV series “Las Vegas” and the miniseries “Empire Falls.”
