Arcel To Helm “Fables” Movie Adaptation

Filmmaker Nikolaj Arcel (“A Royal Affair”) is attached to direct a feature film adaptation of the acclaimed DC/Vertigo comic book series “Fables” for Heyday Films.

Bill Willingham’s comic series poses the premise that characters we know from various fables and stories have fled their various realms and now live in relative secrecy in a community dubbed Fabletown in New York City.

Jeremy Slater is penning the script while David Heyman and Jeffrey Clifford are producing.

There have been various attempts to turn the property into a feature and TV series before, none of which came together. At last report back in 2010, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” director David Yates was linked as a potential director for a film version.
