An adaptation of the popular YA property Artemis Fowl has been in the works at Disney for a long time now, but it looks like the studio is finally ready to push forward with the project — and they’ve got a very familiar director lined up. Cinderella director Kenneth Branagh has signed on to help Disney bring Artemis Fowl to the big screen.

Though we've seen a number of young-adult novels translated to the big screen only to flop ('Beautiful Creatures,' 'The Host') and may yet still (we're curious to see what happens with 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones'), it's still considered a hot genre for adaptations. So it's no surprise Disney wants to bring the YA hit 'Artemis Fowl' to the big screen. What is surprising is that it's being produced by Robert De Niro and Harvey Weinstein.
