The Sisters Grimm
Can somebody say trilogy? Fantasy films are still proving their worth and with smaller projects to the likes of Stardust receiving tons of early buzz, it comes as no surprise that other studios are trying to get onboard with a couple adaptations of their own.
Up next is The Sisters Grimm, a children's book series from author Michael Buckley.
Another Adaptation Coming: The Sisters Grimm
New Regency has acquired the film rights to The Sisters Grimm, a nine-book series. Since the stories are short(er), New Regency plans to squeeze the first three books into a single film. If they were to keep this ratio up, the series could easily become a trilogy.
The Sisters Grimm tells the story of orphaned sisters Sabrina and Daphne Grimm, descendants of the Brothers Grimm, on a quest to find their parents.
"We had a lot of people who were interested, but it didn't seem like there was anybody who could actually get it made," said Buckley of the deal. "And I didn't want to hand the books over and let them sit. Also, I wanted to find people who could make a movie that a parent could enjoy as well as a kid."
"People all over the world have grown up with Grimm's Fairy Tales, and we see this as a huge family adventure franchise," said VP of entertainment Danica Radovanov.
New Regency has a couple big films coming our way including Jumper, Alvin and the Chipmunks and Starship Dave.
