ImageMovers and Disney are in negotiations to pick up film rights to The Stoneheart Trilogy, a young-adult fantasy book series by Charlie Fletcher, according to The Hollywood Reporter. ImageMovers' Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke and Steve Starkey will produce.

The books revolve around a 12-year-old London boy who enters a hidden alternate world where statues, imbued with the soul-like essence of their makers, come to life. The boy's presence upsets a balance between good and evil, and while dealing with such creatures as sphinxes and gargoyles, he teams with an orphan girl and the statue of a World War I gunner to try to set things right.

The third Stoneheart book, Silvertongue, is due in stores next month.
