Live-Action 3D Adaptation of UK's 'Horrid Henry' is on the Way

Horrid Henry

Because of my love for one of British finest exports, the Harry Potter franchise, I have to admit that I'm completely oblivious when it comes to Horrid Henry, the second most successful children's character in the UK. From writer Francesca Simon, Horrid Henry is the main character of the on-going children's book series of the same name which follows his ever constant battle against the tyranny of adults as he forms an unlikely alliance with his little brother Perfect Peter and girl-next-door Moody Margaret. Well, Variety now reports Vertigo Films is working on a live-action 3D adaptation of the series with Nick Moore at the helm.

Being completely unfamiliar with the book series, I don't know if it's just as popular here in the US as it seems to be in the UK, but with a whole slew of DVD's, video games and even a TV series over in England, there's no doubt that many kids are clamoring for this feature. Moore has only one feature film under his belt (Wild Child), but he has loads of experience on major motion pictures having edited films like Love Actually and Leap Year. I'm not sure what to expect from the story, but upon first inspection it does seem much more childish than something like Harry Potter. Anyone excited about a Horrid Henry film?
