30 Books That Could Be The Next Harry Potter
1) Artemis Fowl
The Book: Eoin Colfer’s fantasy adventure series follows the adventures of 12-year-old Artemis Fowl, a young genius with a tendency to bend the law in order to line his pockets with gold. As Colfer himself describes the series, it’s “Die Hard with fairies.”
Potter Factor: A wide cast of weird and wonderfully named characters, many of whom sound as though they could have studied at Hogwarts in their younger years (Minerva Paradiso, Aloysius Maguire etc.), as well as a raft of magical elements have lead to Artemis frequently being dubbed the next HP.
Dream Cast: You would expect an unknown to bag the role of Artemis, in the same way Daniel Radcliffe was cast as Harry. We’ll have Daniel Craig as his stoic bodyguard Domovoi Butler and Emma Stone as feisty elf Holly Short.
Directed By: Mark Gatiss did a brilliant job with another misunderstood genius in the form of Sherlock Holmes, and he’d also be comfortable handling the series’ darker elements.
Radcliffe Cameo Potential: Radcliffe pops up as Mulch Diggums, a thieving dwarf with a nasty case of wind…
