Canadian trio RKSS will direct the upcoming live-action film adaption of “Amos Daragon,” TheWrap has learned.
Originally a 12-book series by Canadian author Bryan Perro, “Amos Daragon” has sold more than 2.5 million copies to date and has been translated into more than 15 languages.
“Amos Daragon” follows the adventures of the 12-year-old title character, and his companions Beorf, Lolya and Medousa, as they journey to find four masks that harness the forces of nature. With the power of these masks, they will be able to defeat the evil villain who threatens their world.
The directing collective is comprised of Anouk Whissell, François Simard and Yoann-Karl Whissell. The trio attended this year’s Sundance Film Festival to support of their latest film, “Summer Of ’84,” which will be released later this year.
RKSS is represented by Gersh and legal by Cuffe Owens at Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson.
Sylvain Viau of IceWorks Pictures Inc., Benoit Beaulieu, Albert I. Melamed and Pierre-Alexandre Bouchard will executive produce.
