Brendan Fraser To Star In 'Inkheart'[Wednesday, August 23rd, 2006]
Brendan Fraser is set to star in New Line Cinema's Inkheart, says the Hollywood Reporter.
The feature is an adaptation of Cornelia Funke's best-selling children's novel. It follows a girl whose father, a bookbinder, has the power to bring characters from books to life by reading aloud. When a villainous ruler and his band of rogues from a children's fable kidnap the man, his daughter and her friends -- both real and imaginary -- must set things right.
Fraser will play the father, Mortimer "Mo" Folchart, who also is known as Silvertongue. Iain Softley is on board to direct the project.
