A movie adaption of the children’s novel A Tale Dark & Grimm is incoming and will be directed by Henry Selick. More information right here.
Henry Selick has already made a name for himself in the animation world, due to his great films Coraline and A Nightmare Before Christmas. Now, he moves into live-action for the first time for an adaption of the Adam Gidwitz novel A Tale Dark & Grimm.
Haven’t read the book? Well here is the synopsis.
Hansel and Gretel walk out of their own story and into eight other classic Grimm (and Grimm-inspired) fairy tales. An irreverent, witty narrator leads us through encounters with witches, warlocks, dragons, and the devil himself. As the siblings roam a forest brimming with menacing foes, they learn the true story behind the famous tales, as well as how to take charge of their destinies and create their own happily ever after. Because once upon a time, fairy tales were awesome.
Knowing Selick, expect A Tale Dark & Grimm to be a gothic yet entertaining affair.
