Kevin Lima, the director of the recent hit Enchanted, is on board to direct the Warner Bros. movie adaptation of The Spook’s Apprentice. Based on the first book in the Wardstone Chronicles trilogy by British author Joseph Delaney, the story centers on Thomas Ward, the seventh son of a seventh son who is being trained to be an exorcist in the 1700s. Lima previously directed 102 Dalmations and Tarzan, and he can only hope that this project, a beloved title in the U.K. with significant franchise potential, winds up faring more like Harry Potter than The Spiderwick Chronicles.
