Walt Disney Studios and Harvey Weinstein haven’t worked together on a project since Mirimax closed its doors in 2005. But now the two are getting ready to reunite for a film adaptation of Eoin Colfer’s novel Artemis Fowl.

Michael Goldenberg (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) will pen the screenplay, and Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal will executive produce.
