Attack of the Highfield Mole!

Well, the CGI industry should be pleased with this news: after spending several years languishing in development, Relativity Media is finally moving forward on a movie adaptation of Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams's Tunnels series. (We reviewed the first few books in the series here and here. Be warned, spoilers abound.) Mikael Hafstrom has been hired to direct, from a screenplay adapted by Andrew Lobel. I wasn't particularly impressed by this series*, but I suspect it will make a fun movie, particularly if you're the kind of person who likes computer-generated monsters.

*When it comes to stories about kids exploring underground Wonderlands, I preferred both Kirsten Miller's Kiki Strike books and Suzanne Collins's Gregor the Overlander series, even with its deeply flawed ending. Actually, now that I think about it I'm amazed the Gregor books aren't already being made into a film. You'd think the success of The Hunger Games would have guaranteed it...
