Fulwell 73 has secured the rights to turn Helen Cresswell’s young adult novel Moondial into an ambitious time travel drama after the book inspired a popular BBC series of the same name in 1988. The James Corden-backed company will team with Matt Lopez, who wrote Nicolas Cage starrer The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Dwayne Johnson’s Race To Witch Mountain, to reimagine the book, which follows a teenage girl as she discovers a portal through time while wandering the grounds of a nearby mansion.

Also partnering on the project is wiip, the indie studio run by former BBC and ABC executive Paul Lee. Executive producers are Lopez; Leo Pearlman, Jeff Grosvenor and Heather Greenwood for Fulwell 73; and Lee and Nne Ebong for wiip.

Fulwell 73 partner Pearlman said the BBC drama was a big inspiration for the series, with Greenwood being a “fan of all things BBC YA” from the 1980s. “Moondial is an incredibly uplifting and important story, which illustrates the importance of valuing people for who they are, not what they look like or where they come from, a message ever more pertinent given the world we’re all now living in,” he said.

Lopez said: “Like the best genre stories, Helen Cresswell’s Moondial uses fantasy and the supernatural to reveal something deep, eternal and true about human beings and how we relate to each other. It’s a time travel story whose themes are quite literally timeless.”

Just from that, I imagine this is doomed. Whatever the novel was like (I've never heard of it), those two films were really, really bad....
