Image Entertainment and The Film Arcade have co-acquired fantasy/action film “The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box” at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). The $25 million film is based on the best-selling novel “Mariah Mundi and the Midas Box.”

“With the novel’s strong following, there’s no doubt that THE ADVENTURER: THE CURSE OF THE MIDAS BOX will be a hit with fans and general audiences alike,” said Image Entertainment’s Chief Acquisition Officer, Bill Bromiley. “The film takes moviegoers on a fantastical ride that will entertain every generation of the family.”

“Image Entertainment and The Film Arcade have proven that they can work with the Producers as a team,” said Exec Producer and Dreamcatchers manager, Marina Fuentes. “This was something essential for us. We believe that their highly professional teams will make a splash with this entertaining family film in the US market.”

“The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box” is directed by Jonathan Newman and stars Michael Sheen (“Frost/Nixon,” “The Twilight Saga”), Lena Headey (“Game of Thrones”, “300”), Sam Neill (“Jurassic Park,” “The Tudors”), Ioan Gruffudd (“Fantastic Four”) and Aneurin Barnard (“The White Queen”).

Here’s more about “The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box”:

“Ancient mysteries. Powerful evil. And a fearless hero’s quest through a fantastical realm of steam-powered wonders and sinister magic… In THE ADVENTURER: THE CURSE OF THE MIDAS BOX, seventeen-year-old Mariah Mundi’s life is turned upside down when his parents vanish and his younger brother is kidnapped. Following a trail of clues to the darkly majestic Prince Regent Hotel, Mariah discovers a hidden realm of child-stealing monsters, deadly secrets and a long-lost artifact that grants limitless wealth – but also devastating supernatural power. With the fate of his world, and his family at stake, Mariah will risk everything to unravel the Curse of the Midas Box!”

“The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box” was produced by Karl Richards, Ibon Cormenzana, Ignasi Estapé and Peter Bevan.
