Emma Watson Rumbles With Rumplestiltskin? (PHOTOS)
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is being released this weekend, transforming the classic fairy tale into action-packed adventure. The film follows in the footsteps of such projects as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which found America’s 14th president battling bloodsuckers — and not the ones in Congress! — and falls in line with a spate of projects, including a long-discussed adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which turns classic literature, or even the stuff of history, into thrill rides for popcorn-munchers around the globe.
All of which led us to wonder — which of our favorite childhood stories could also be made into big-budget, high-concept hits? We flipped through a few of the yarns we loved as children and set our imaginations to work.
Unhindered by budgetary limitations or other such obstacles, we came up with seven stories that might make interesting moviegoing fodder, and included a shortlist of directors and stars who might be best-suited to bring them to life.
Take a look at our choices and let us know whether or not you think our choices for story, star and director are right. And underneath the Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters trailer in the comments section below, let us know: which fairy tale would you most like to see turned into a big-screen adventure?
