David Farr and Dave Hill have been hired to re-write MERLIN for Warner Bros Pictures. The plot is being kept under wraps but it was at one point based on the first two books of the “Lost Years of Merlin” series written by TA Barron. It’s unclear if the project will remain tethered to the books or forge its own path.
Donald De Line will produce through his De Line Pictures.
Farr has written 2011’s “Hanna” and is also currently attached to write “The Fallen Idol” and “Paani.” Hill is a newbie to the world of (paid) writing and has previously worked as an assistant to David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, creators of “Game of Thrones.”
Farr is repped by Curtis Brown Group.
