Sega nabs Dark Materials

Sega will publish a series of games based on New Line movie adaptations of His Dark Materials, a trilogy of fantasy novels by Philip Pullman. MCV reports that the first film, The Golden Compass, is budgeted at $150 million US and will star Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig when it premieres in November of 2007. The novels follow Lyra Belacqua and Will Parry as they travel a multiverse inhabited by dæmons, witches, and armoured bears. New Line seems to hope the movies will take the place of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, which hasn't been in theatres since 2003.
