In addition to Albarn's music, the film adaptation of the story will be narrated by actor Jude Law, according to the Playlist. Luke Losey -- who has worked on videos for acts like Orbital and Mercury Rev -- will reportedly serve as director.
Expect a spring 2011 debut for the film, which, like the book, "centers on a young boy who lives in the cottage with a big old oak tree out back. He doesn't really care about the tree and certainly doesn't know it is enchanted, but all that changes as the fairies living in the oak are about to cast a spell that will change his life forever."
As previously reported, Albarn is also keeping busy with his involvement in the 2012 London Olympic Games and has recently pondered retiring Gorillaz, his world famous cartoon band, co-founded with Jamie Hewlett.
