Gold Circle Casts a Spell on "The Arcanum"


Variety.com reports that Gold Circle Films (White Noise, Slither) has bought the film rights to Thomas Wheeler's novel "The Arcanum" from Miramax. Wheeler's book, published in 2004 by Bantam, deals with a circle of familiar historical figures -- Arthur Conan Doyle, Harry Houdini, H.P. Lovecraft, and Marie Laveau -- battling evil in 1919 New York City. Gold Circle exec Paul Brooks said, "We see this as a potential franchise property." The company is currently seeking out directors for the project.
