‘Arcanum’ Dropped Then Picked Up

arcanum.gifThe Arcanum, a fantasy-adventure novel written by Thomas Wheeler, is set in 1919 and revolves around a group of occult investigators led by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle — think along the lines of Justice League or Super Friends.  The title refers to the name of the group, whose mission is to more or less save the human race.  Other members include Harry Houdini, H.P. Lovecraft and Marie Laveau.

Variety reports that Miramax originally held the rights to adapt the novel but Gold Circle Films has recently picked it up out of turnaround.  Gold Circle is really hoping to turn this into a franchise and are looking for a director right now.  I hope it works out, this sounds pretty cool.
