Arnold and Anne Kopelson will make a film adaptation of Michael Scott's upcoming novel "Otherworld" via their production company Kopelson Entertainment.

Choosing a seemingly promising material to hit hard the film industry, Kopelson Entertainment partners Arnold and Anne Kopelson are both set to develop a fantasy feature entitled "Otherworld" under their company banner.

Project turns out to be a big screen adaptation of the Michael Scott's upcoming book which will be a contemporary fantasy dealing with ancient demons unleashed by global warming. This is not the first time the Irish author had his work adapted to movie as New Line Cinema has already been on the move to make "The Immortal Nicholas Flamel" based on his forthcoming novel scheduled to hit U.S. stores on May 22 this year.

Names to direct and star still remain a mystery for now, but it is confirmed that Scott himself will write the screenplay while the Kopelsons are onboard to produce. A husband-and -wife team, the latter are also taking producer's seat on "" and "", both slated for 2009 release.
