THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER notes that ABOUT A BOY production team Chris and Paul Weitz have optioned 11 books of Michael Moorcock's fantasy classic ELRIC, with Universal Pictures behind them. 

Moorcock's albino prince is regarded as one of the two or three great masterworks of fantasy fiction, and the author has previously resisted the transition to film. He's included in the deal as a producer and has told CINESCAPE that he expects to have meaningful input on the project.
