    Sam Raimi to Direct The Wee Free Men

    "Spider-Man" franchise director Sam Raimi will helm The Wee Free Men, an adaptation of Terry Pratchett's bestselling young-adult novel, reports Variety.

    Sony Pictures Entertainment has acquired the book and set Pamela Pettler (Monster House, Tim Burton's Corpse Bride) to write the script.

    Raimi and Josh Donen will produce through their Sony-based company, along with Created By's Vince Gerardis and Ralph Vicinanza. The trade says the studio is aiming to develop an event-sized live-action family film that Raimi could possibly direct as the follow-up to Spider-Man 3.

    Published in 2003, "Wee Free Men" centers on a 9-year-old farm girl who heads off to a parallel world to retrieve a brother who has been grabbed by a nasty fairy queen. She battles the monsters of Fairyland with the help of 6-inch-tall blue-faced rowdies who wear kilts, speak in thick Scottish brogues, steal sheep and drink heavily.

    The novel is part of the British author's Disc World series, whose volumes are big sellers around the world.

    Pettler is also writing 9, a CGI fantasy for Focus Features that Burton is producing and Shane Acker is directing, and is rewriting Nick Tungsten, Nightmare Hunter for director Doug Liman at Paramount and Nickelodeon. Pettler is also set to adapt Roald Dahl novel The Twits for Disney and Vanguard.
