Magic has been good to Harry Potter producer David Heyman. And though that film series comes to a close this week, Heyman is already lining up his next fantasy book adaptation. Heyman is zeroing in on Night Circus, a book-to-film deal set up at Summit.

The story is set at the beginning of the 19th century, telling the story of two young magicians who are caught in an age-old rivalry between their illusionist fathers, and the enchanted circus where they compete. Things, naturally, get complicated when they start knocking magic boots. How complicated? Well, the lives of everyone involved in the circus hang in the balance. So, I think it’s safe for them to check off “It’s Complicated” as their relationship status on social networking sites. They’ve earned that. (THR)
