Arrow WB Pictures negotiating for rights to Encyclopedia Brown

From Dark Horizons: Warners Re-Opens The "Encyclopedia Brown"



Warner Bros. Pictures is in final negotiations for the film rights to Donald J. Sobol's iconic kids book series "Encyclopedia Brown".

The story follows Leroy Brown, a local police chief's son who runs his own detective agency out of the familyís garage.

Brown and his friend and "bodyguard" Sally Kimball solve petty crimes, usually committed by local bully Bugs Meany.

Sobol penned the books over a five decade period. Roy Lee and Howard David Deutsch will produce.

I've always thought Disney should have snagged this a long time ago.

Very cool. That was the very first series of books latched onto when I was a kid. I loved it when I could figure out a mystery before it was spelled out, but that didn't happen too often.

I love it. Make a multi million dollar movie targeted at kids/teens only to to irritate parents iwth the hours of questions coming after the movie. Primarily:

"What's an encyclopedia?"

If this succeeds I hope the Danny Dunn series gets the same treatment as well.
