    Harvey Weinstein is working his magic to bring “The Alchemist” to the bigscreen more than a decade after author Paolo Coelho sold the film rights to his bestselling novel. Production on the $60 million project is set to start late spring with Weinstein personally producing for the Weinstein Co., which will also handle worldwide sales. Laurence Fishburne acquired the feature rights with indie banner A-Mark Entertainment from Warner Bros. Fishburne is still attached to direct, star and produce although Weinstein will be bringing in a new writer, reportedly an Oscar-winning scribe, to deliver a fresh draft of the script. “The Lord of the Rings” producer Barrie Osborne has, however, ankled the project. He had been due to co-produce with Fishburne and Helen Sugland while the project had been set at A-Mark. Weinstein is believed to have acquired the film rights from Fishburne and A-Mark for just under $3 million. Weinstein Co. refused to comment on the size of the deal, which was brokered by Paradigm Motion Picture Finance Group, who also rep Fishburne. Move is something of a coup for Weinstein, who was in an ebullient mood at the Cannes confab announcing the deal.

    One of the best books I've ever read, The Alchemist is a story of a shepherd who leaves everything behind to travel the world. It's a literary reminder that the possibilities in our lives are endless if we just take the plunge and follow our dreams. Normally I would have thought this kind of book was a bit corny ("inspirational" "evocative" blah blah) but I recommend everyone read The Alchemist.
