The boys at Heat Vision got the scoop on a pretty gnarly project from Radical Pictures (who has yet to get one of several projects behind a camera) that will team them with Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine Entertainment to develop for the big screen Legends, a graphic novel from Radical’s publishing arm that brings together such characters as Red Riding Hood, Jack the Giant Killer and Hansel & Gretel in a dark fantasy setting. You can get the full skinny and check out a trailer for the graphic novel by reading below.
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.
The world of the graphic novel is a mash-up of steampunk and creatures, technology and magic.
Nick Percival created the graphic novel, which comes out this month.
