Sarah Cornwell is set to adapt the first installment of THE DRAGONRIDERS OF PERN for Warner Bros. The adventure/fantasy film, based on the 22-volume book series by Anne McCaffrey, follows a group of “dragonriders,” humans who can communicate telepathically with their dragons, as they defend against a scourge that threatens to destroy the vegetation in their world.
Cornwell is the author/screenwriter whose debut novel What I Had Before You was published earlier this year to much acclaim. Her upcoming screenwriting work includes penning the scripts for the drama Demon Camp and the horror film The Forest, which is set to star Natalie Dormer.
Cornwell is repped by CAA.
