Gaiman’s HANSEL & GRETEL to become a live-action film


Neil Gaiman’s new graphic novel adaptation of the Brothers’ Grimm fairy tale classic Hansel and Gretel, illustrated by Lorenzo Mattotti, is to be adapted into a live-action film.  uliet Blake of Four Chickens for a Fiver acquired the rights for the adaptation.

“For me, retelling Hansel and Gretel was a way of telling an old tale in a way that made it immediate and true, and about us, now. It reminds us of how paper thin civilization really is. It’s about hunger, and about families. I’m thrilled and delighted to be working with Juliet Blake to bring Hansel and Gretel to the world again, and to show people how much this story has to say to us,” Gaiman told Variety.

Hansel & Gretel by Neil Gaiman and Lorenzo Mattotti will be released on October 28th. For more, visit Gaiman’s website or follow him on or .
