Sam Raimi is in negotiations to produce  The Familiars for Sony Pictures Animation. The Familiars, an upcoming children’s fantasy book series written by Adam Jay Epstein and Andrew Jacobson, follows three young wizard apprentices who, after being whisked away to an evil kingdom by a nefarious queen, must rely on their animal companions — an alley cat, a blue jay and a tree frog — to escape. The series will contain three books. Epstein and Jacobson will write the script, aswell. Their reps, UTA and H2F Entertainment, wanted to wait for the books to reach the galley stage before selling the movie rights, but the buzz generated from the book deal attracted Hollywood execs. Stars Road exec Russell Hollander brought the project to Raimi.
