Gold Circle picks up The Arcanum

wheeler-the_arcanum.jpgThis could be good. Gold Circle Films have picked up the rights to the 2004 fantasy adventure novel The Arcanum after Miramax's rights deal expired says Variety. No director is attached as of yet, though the book's author has penned the script.
"The Arcanum," Wheeler's debut novel, is set in 1919 and follows the titular secret society comprising the era's leading occult investigators -- Arthur Conan Doyle, Harry Houdini, H.P. Lovecraft and Marie Laveau -- as they battle demons descending on New York City, including a serial killer of angels.
I've said it before but it's worth repeating. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was one of the biggest f*** up's of recent years. Actually the same goes with Van Helsing also. These movies had great concepts and a whole wealth of potential with what they could have done but they all totally messed up with their execution. Gold Circle are hoping that The Arcanum can be turned into a series franchise but of course they thought that with "Gentlemen also".
