Jack Thorne scripting BBC’s His Dark Materials

pullman_his_dark_materialsThe Fades and The Last Panthers’ Jack Thorne will be penning Bad Wolf’s adaptation of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials for the BBC, according to a report at Deadline.

“It is such an honour and a privilege to be given this opportunity to delve into Philip Pullman’s world,” Thorne told Deadline. “The His Dark Materials trilogy are vast and glorious books full of beautiful characters and I’m going to work as hard as I can to try and do justice to them.”

“I’m delighted to welcome Jack Thorne as writer on the TV dramatisation of His Dark Materials,” added Pullman. “Jack is a writer of formidable energy and range, and I’ve greatly enjoyed talking to him and learning about his plans for bringing His Dark Materials to the screen. I’m certain he’ll do a superb job, and I look forward to seeing the whole project develop as he shapes the story.”

The series is being made in Wales by Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner’s new production company for BBC One.
