Per THR, FilmNation Entertainment and Kamala Films are teaming to turn Adam Gidwitz’s popular children’s book A Dark Tale & Grimm into a live-action feature. Jon Gunn (My Date With Drew) and John W. Mann (Mercy Streets) will write the adapted screenplay.
Gidwtiz’s original story – inspired by the Brothers Grimm – “follows the adventures of two unsuspecting children who hold the key to breaking out of the Dark Ages.” FilmNation has acquired film rights to the book and will partner with Marissa McMahon of Kamala Films in financing and producing Dark & Grimm alongside FilmNation Entertainment’s Aaron Ryder and Karen Lunder.
Per McMahon “Gidwitz’s A Tale Dark & Grimm is a smart, addictive and hilariously gruesome narrative that turns familiar fairy tales on their head, much to the delight of both children and parents. I’m looking forward to joining Mann, Gunn and the FilmNation team to bring this fantastically original story to the big screen.”
