A Favorite Book to Become Movie

A favorite author / adventurer, Alan Dean Foster, recently optioned movie rights to his fantasy novel “Spellsinger” first published in paperback in 1983.
I’m hopeful to see it rendered in a form like that of “The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader.”
Amazon.com features this description of the book made available for Kindle this February via publisher Open Road:

Jonathan Thomas Meriweather is a typical college student, interested in girls, music, and an occasional taste of reefer. But when a journey through an interdimensional portal lands him in a world of talking animals and ominous sorcery, he finds he is on a very different trip indeed. Here, when he plays a strange instrument called a duar, peculiar things happen—powerful magic that may be the only way to stop a dark force that threatens his new world—and his old one. Reluctantly, he finds himself teaming up with a semi-senile turtle wizard; a thieving, backstabbing otter; and a bewildered Marxist dragon to rally an army for the war about to come.

Foster deserves the title author / adventurer thanks to his ongoing world travels and competitive powerlifting mentioned in his October update on his website here:
