Christian Limmer to adapt Phenomena

The Munich-based writer will adapt the award-winning Norwegian fantasy book series for both film and television.

Phenomena is based on the seven-book series by Ruben Eliassen that centres on two elf children who learn they could hold the key to saving the world from evil forces.

The books were published in Norway from 2002-2012. Limmer’s completed screenplay would be the first version to introduce the adventures to English-speaking audiences.

Limmer is currently shortlisted by the German Academy in the best TV writer category for TV movie Paradise 505. His credits include Tatort and Polizeiruf 110 as well as the feature Hinter Kaifeck.

Christian Arnold-Beutel has come on board as producer alongside Gudrun Giddings, Marius Haugan and Daniel Marc Dreifuss.

Giddings and Beutel brokered the deal on behalf of the producers with Astride Bergauer of Agentur Scenario on behalf of Limmer.
