In A Darker Shade of Magic, there are four versions of London: White London, Red London, Grey London and Black London. The book follows a magician named Kell, who has the rare ability to travel throughout the parallel universes. Magic is treated differently in each London. Grey London residents don’t believe in magic, but Black London residents fight over it.

In addition to Gerard Butler, the film will be produced by Danielle Robinson, Alan Siegel, Neal Moritz, and Schwab herself, as she has confirmed on Twitter:
