Shadow & Bone, the amazing debut novel by Leigh Bardugo, has been optioned by DreamWorks Studio.  David Heyman, Harry Potter producer, will produce along with Jeffery Clifford.

“We found not just a fantastic story, but one set in a mystical and fascinating world that will translate well to the big screen,” said DreamWorks production president Holly Bario. “We are excited to begin adapting this book and look forward to working with David Heyman who has unparalleled proven success in this genre.”

Heyman called Shadow and Bone “a riveting and wholly original adventure set in a breathtakingly imaginative world.”
