Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class) is now scripting the ‘Fables’ comic book adaptation, which Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) is set to direct.
Woot! I have been wanting to read Fables for so long, –and now I have a good reason to make it a priority. Terrible, I know, but what can I say? I was kind of hoping Neil Gaiman’s Sandman volumes might be chosen at some point for an adaptation, but alas, I suppose not.
I’ll have to go out and get caught up first. The movie probably won’t be out for a long while, and it’s like there’s a race between Fables and The Sandman actually. Btw, if you haven’t read the series yet, it’s about fairy tale characters, quite a lot like the TV show Once Upon a Time, actually, except a bit darker and more sexy.
