    O'Rourke To Direct "Houdini Box"

    By Garth Franklin Tuesday January 8th 2013 09:26PM
    Irish filmmaker Kealan O'Rourke ("The Boy in the Bubble") has been set to write and direct a film adaptation of Brian Selznick's 1991 young adult novel "The Houdini Box" at Chernin Entertainment.
    The story centers on a boy unsuccessfully attempting to perform Harry Houdini's magic tricks. He soon meets his idol at a train station and begs Houdini to explain himself.
    He later receives a letter inviting him to Houdini's house - the same day Houdini died and be quested a mysterious, locked box to the boy.
    Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping will produce. Selznick also wrote "The Invention of Hugo Cabret," which was adapted into Martin Scorsese's "Hugo."
