After years of fan requests and at least one failed attempt with the Jim Henson Company, DC Comics’ Fables finally going to get a movie adaptation.
This series, which was created by Bill Willingham has now been given a director: Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) and a writer” Jeremy Slater on scripting duty.
It is being produced by David Heyman and Jeffrey Clifford (Harry Potter).
Here’s a synopsis of the series from Wikipedia:
“The series deals 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.”
