Mirkwood Partners, LLC, creators and rights-holders of all intellectual property related to the upcoming fantasy novel series, "The Chronicles of Ara", written by Joel Eisenberg and Steven Hillard, have entered into a finance and development deal with Rhode Island-based Aloris Entertainment to develop a television series based on the property.
Aloris produced "The English Teacher" with Julianne Moore, and is attached to further feature film and television projects with Eisenberg. Gilbert Adler, producer of "Superman Returns", "Constantine" with Keanu Reeves, "Valkyrie" with Tom Cruise and the original "Tales from the Crypt" television series is attached as producer.
"The Chronicles of Ara" is a hugely ambitious property," Adler says. "We have an amazing
wealth of material to choose from for the show and I'm looking forward to being part of this
The books attempt to decipher the origins of artistic creation. "To get there," says Eisenberg, "we reverse-engineer the myth of the muse. What if there, in reality, was but one muse who inspired all of art and creativity? And, what if that muse was corrupted? What is the endgame?"
The work follows the influences of several prominent authors of horror, science fiction and fantasy as they are inspired to create their greatest works. These authors include Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, J.R.R. Tolkien, Dante, Jules Verne and numerous others.
The books were inspired by Hillard's "Mirkwood", released in 2010 as a "fictional novel about J.R.R. Tolkien." The author received an order from the Tolkien estate to cease publication of the novel, but the dispute to federal court. The parties settled, the book was released and became an amazon fantasy bestseller. Tolkien figures prominently in the first book of "The Chronicles of Ara".
