Fairy Tales Get Dark in Legends Adaptation
Who would have thought that the world of comic books would have ended being such a wellspring of material for Hollywood. It's pretty damned amazing. No surprise, there's another on the way, but this one takes some of literature's most beloved characters and paints them in a light that horror fans will surely dig on!
According to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision Blog Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine Entertainment and Radical Pictures are partnering to bring us Legends, a graphic novel from Radical’s publishing arm that brings together such beloved characters as Red Riding Hood, Jack the Giant Killer, and Hansel & Gretel in a dark fantasy setting.
"The story in "Legends" is set in motion 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."
Dig on some art and the trailer for the graphic novel, which comes out later this month, below.
