Spiderwick Chronicles Coming To The Big Screen (TBS)

The IMDB has a listing for a film version of The Spiderwick Chronicles by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black. The fabulous Freddie Highmore is listed as playing the twins, Jared and Simon Grace. This film is due in US theaters 15 February 2008. As usual, this leaves me wondering how close to the books the movie will be. In this case, I would like to know specifically how many of the books this movie will cover. There are currently 5 books in the series, plus a Field Guide, Notebook, and The Care and Feeding of Sprites. Here’s hoping that the film reflects some of the art style of the book’s illustrations. Oh! I just noticed that Andrew McCarthy is listed as being in the film, but no word as to which character he plays. (I used to have such a crush on him.) Well, I haven’t read this series yet, but it looks like I’ll be adding them to my list. I’ve got a year. I can do it.
