Radical, Imagine Develop LEGENDS

Heat Vision reports that Brian Grazer and Ron Howard of Imagine Entertainment and Barry Levine's comics-to-film entity Radical Pictures are teaming to bring Legends to the big screen.

Based on a Radical Publishing comic book by Nick Percival, the story focuses on a mash-up concept that filters such characters as Red Riding Hood, Jack the Giant Killer and Hansel & Gretel through steampunk, sci-fi and creature-feature trappings. According to Heat Vision, it all begins when "the remains of Pinocchio are discovered. Red Hood, now a noted wolf hunter, and Jack 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."

Radical's Jesse Berger is an executive producer.



HARRY POTTER director spinning FABLES?

Pajiba reports that British director David Yates is rumored to be "up to direct" the big screen version of Bill Willingham's DC/Vertigo title Fables. The site claims to hae verified that Yates, best known for two of the recent Harry Potter films, is one of the directors being considered for the job.

Fables (which is nothing at all like Legends) focuses on such characters as Red Riding Hood, Jack Horner and Hansel & Gretel, transplanting them to a fictitious neighborhood of New York City called Fabletown. The characters live in exile there, having been driven away from their homelands by a conqueror known as "The Adversary".
