From Screen Daily: Good Universe has acquired international sales rights to Pandemonium’s The Moon And The Sun starring Pierce Brosnan and will kick off pre-sales in Cannes.

Read the book before you see the movie!
As Screen Daily writes: The fantasy-adventure centres on imagined events during the reign of King Louis XIV as the French leader’s bid for immortality leads him to capture and attempt to steal the life force from a mermaid, to be played by rising Chinese star Fan Bingbing. Complications arise when the Sun King’s 18-year-old illegitimate daughter Marie-Josephe falls for the mermaid’s keeper and risks everything trying to set him and the mythical creature free.
Sean McNamara, whose credits include Soul Surfer, will direct The Moon And The Sun. Pandemonium head Bill Mechanic will adapt the novel with co-writers Barry Berman, James Schamus and Laura Harrington and will also produce the film.
And did I mention … Pierce Brosnan?
