Akkord Film and publisher Boje (part of Bastei Lübbe AG) are planning to enchant audiences through screens big and small with adaptations of best-selling kids’ book series Petronella the Apple Witch. The rights deal was secured at Berlin Film Festival, with Akkord announcing its intent to develop both a feature film and TV series. The cooperation was instigated by Hamburg-based producer Maite Woköck, who is set to produce alongside Akkord. Screenwriter Katja Grübel (RABBIT SCHOOL) is already working on the FFA funded cinema adaption of the books by Sabine Städing. For the full press release see here.
