Fishburne has purpose with 'Alchemist'


Laurence Fishburne and A-Mark Entertainment have acquired the film rights to the best-selling novel "The Alchemist" from Warner Bros. Pictures with the intent of making the movie themselves (HR 6/27).

Warners acquired author Paulo Coelho's philosophical book — about a traveler journeying the world during the Inquisition in order to find man's purpose in the world — in 2003 as a Fishburne vehicle. Since its debut in 1988, the book has been translated into 56 languages and has sold more than 40 million copies in more than 150 countries.
