Over the past few years, two of the biggest trends in blockbuster filmmaking have been making movies based on comic books and making movies based on fairy tales. Because of this, it’s seemed a might bit strange that “Fables,” a title published by DC’s more experimental and arty line of books, Vertigo, has had such a hard time getting adapted for the screen. Not only does creator Bill Willingham’s comic series utilize characters like Snow White, Prince Charming, and the Big Bad Wolf, but it brings them into our world, gives them sexy updates, and it’s won a whole heap of awards for its storytelling, to boot. Sounds like the perfect property to turn into a movie, don’t you think? Well, Harry Potter producers, Heyday Films, seem to think so too, because Heat Vision is reporting that they’ve acquired the film rights to Willingham’s work, and they’ve hired the guy who’s writing the new Fantastic Four movie, Jeremy Slater, to come up with a script, as well as A Royal Affair helmer, Nikolaj Arcel, to direct.
