I've recently mentioned a whole list of fairy tales that are going to get their movie adaptations in the near future, and we have two more upcoming films with the same subject.
Ron Howard will produce the adaptation of the graphic novel "Legends" which shows popular fairy tale characters in a very dark aspect: "Legends" begins when the remains of Pinocchio are found. Red Riding Hood, now a noted wolf hunter, and Jack The Giant Killer partner to discover who is murdering the creatures of folklore. Along the way, they are assisted by characters such as Goldilocks, re-imagined as a mercenary, and Hansel & Gretel, now psychic exterminators.
On the other side, David Yates ("Half Blooded Harry Plopper") will probably direct "Fables". It's still not sure whether it will be a Warner Bros. film or ABC mini-series based on the graphic novels. "Fables" deal with various characters from fairy tales and folklore, referring to themselves as "Fables", who have been forced out of their Homelands by "The Adversary" who has conquered the realm. The Fables have traveled to our world and formed a clandestine community in New York City known as Fabletown. Fables who are unable to blend in with human society (such as monsters and anthropomorphic animals) live at "the Farm" in upstate New York.
