The Hollywood Reporter says that Mythology Entertainment, the production company behind White House Down, has picked up the rights to Zenescope Entertainment’s Grimm Fairy Tales Presents: The Library. Brad Fischer (Zodiac), James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man). and Jon Silk will produce the project with Zenescope founders Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco. The search for a screenwriter is currently underway.
Written by Joe Brusha with art by Giovanni Timpano, The Library is officially described as follows:
“When fourteen-year-old Sela Mathers discovers an ancient magic book in a condemned library, she and her younger brother cast a spell that unlocks the amazing worlds and characters from the books and novels around them. Hercules, Robin Hood, and Pecos Bill all come magically to life! But, heroes aren’t the only characters in stories. Villains, too, are affected by the magic spell and soon the children find themselves in a race against time to reverse the spell as evil characters from all of literature threaten to take over the world! Their only chance lies with the heroes they’ve brought to life. But even that may not be enough to stop the Frankenstein Monster, Baba Yaga, and the Wicked Witch of the West!”
