‘The Phantom Tollbooth’ to Receive Film Treatment

‘The Phantom Tollbooth’ to Receive Film Treatment

The beloved children’s book The Phantom Tollbooth, written by Norton Juster and illustrated by Jules Feiffer, has captured the hearts of millions of readers. It’s no surprise, then, that a film adaptation has been “in the works for quite some time,” according to IndieWire. And now that big screen dream may finally become a reality.

Tristar Pictures will be adapting The Phantom Tollbooth into a major motion picture, reports GalleyCat. While Alex Tse was previously in charge of the scriptwriting when the project first got off the ground, Michael Vukadinovich will be taking over and penning the current screenplay.

The Phantom Tollbooth has received the film treatment once before, in a live-action and animated mix-up produced by Chuck Jones in 1970. I wonder what path this new version will walk compared to the latter?

Omg I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email emutemple@gmail.com  or Call/WhatsApp cell number  +2347012841542

My name is Tom Peacock from USA, I want to say thank you to Dr Emu for the good thing he has done for me, Though am not sure if this is the best forum to show my joy and happiness for what he has done for me but i can't hide my happiness and my joy so i have to share it with people, my marriage got crashed about two years ago and i tried all i could within my power but to no avail. I saw a post and testimonial about the good things Dr Emu has been doing so I decided to give it a try. though he is always a busy man but when he responded back to my email, he gave me 48 hours for my marriage to be restored really just like he said my marriage was restored since then I am happy and i am living happily i am so grateful to Dr Emu you can always email him here: {emutemple@gmail.com} or WhatsApp: {+2347012841542}

Phantom Tollbooth is a very good book. It has a lot of important lessons that I have learned from it. The main lesson that I have learned was that we should never give up on our dreams. I would recommend this Purse organizer insert to get best ideas. If you want something so bad, then you should just keep trying until you get it. The main character in the book kept trying and he finally got what he wanted.
