Long Running Vertigo Series ‘Fables’ Set To Be Adapted To Film
By Joe Hughes
Over the course of its run, the Vertigo series Fables has grown into one of the most critically lauded titles in mainstream comics. Easily the most successful project in the long comics careers of creator and writer Bill Willingham and artist Mark Buckingham, the acclaimed story of Snow White, Big Bad (Bigby) Wolf, Prince Charming and more legendary fairytale characters living among civilians in New York has won multiple awards, and now stands as the second longest running series in Vertigo’s history.
Despite it’s popularity and critical success, it’s never been adapted to any other medium. According to The Hollywood Reporter, that may soon change, as the site is reporting that a Fables film is in the works, with Danish filmmaker Nikolaj Arcel attached to direct. David Heyman and Jeffrey Clifford, who previously worked on the Harry Potter films, have been brought on as Producers.
YES please be amazing, all the spin-offs need to be produced eventually. <3
