Published in April via Dial Books, the Ursula Vernon-penned adventure centers on a twelve-year-old witch who must navigate a slew of bizarre magical tasks in order to claim a dark castle as her own.
Vernon has won numerous awards and received accolades for her webcomic Digger and her popular children’s book series Dragonbreath.
Castle Hangnail marks the second notable pick-up in DeGeneres’ transition into producing features, though she’s plenty busy in the television space with her deal with Warner Bros. Television.
In early 2015 the shingle set up Uprooted, another fantasy novel, at Warner Bros.
DeGeneres is repped by ICM.
