Fables Coming to the Big Screen

by SuperHeroHype

June 04, 2013

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that fan favorite Vertigo series Fables is on its way to the big screen. A Royal Affair director Nikolaj Arcel is now attached to helm the project based on the Bill Willingham series. Screenwriter Jeremy Slater (writer behind the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot) has been brought on to write the film. David Heyman and Jeffrey Clifford of Heyday Films will produce.

Two other attempts have been made to adapt Fables into another medium, but both were halted in development before production could begin.

Fables imagines that all the characters from the world’s most beloved storybooks are real - real, and living among us, with all of their powers intact. From Snow White and the Big Bad Wolf, to Goldilocks and Little Boy Blue, these beloved characters are alive and well - but they’ve been exiled from the land of fairy tales. Escaping the mysterious Adversary, they have relocated to a magically camouflaged New York City neighborhood known as Fabletown. To survive in the mundane world, the Fables will have to fight for their happily ever after.

A Fables video game will also debut this summer from Telltale games titled The Wolf Among Us.

I love Fables. I've always thought if they made it into a movie, you'd kinda HAVE to have Hugh Jackman play Bigby, but I'm guessing since he's Wolverine, that can't happen. I REALLY hope they go adult with it, and not try to make it a pg-13 kiddie movie.
