Circle of Confusion has picked up Dan Kay’s horror script “A Wicked Tale,” dubbed a contemporary horror take on the Brothers Grimm tale “Hansel & Gretel” with the plan to use the film as the kickoff a shared universe of horror fairytales.
The story follows two college students who stumble upon something sinister in the local woods after an altercation with a fellow student leads to deadly consequences. Should sequels happen, they will incorporate reimagined versions of classic fairytales and public domain characters.
Zack Andrews and Bobby Roe will be rewriting the script with Roe on board to direct the film. Andrews, Josh Weinstock, Matt Smith and Lawrence Mattis will produce.
