    Default Paul Greengrass to adapt & direct "Fairy Tale"

    How’s this for a powerhouse pairing? Paul Greengrass will adapt, direct and produce a feature adaptation of Fairy Tale, the bestselling novel by Stephen King that Scribner just published. King is a fan of Greengrass’s films, and has granted him the option — at the usual $1 against a healthy backend — for an epic tale that follows a 17-year old boy who inherits the keys to a terrifying world where good and evil are at war. The stakes could not be higher, for that world and ours, as he journeys into the mythic roots of human storytelling. It is the world creation that King so excels at.

    From what I’ve heard, the property will be shopped imminently, and I expect there to be no shortage of bidders as studios and streamers look for branded titles with global theatrical tent pole potential, especially in the skilled hands of a filmmaker like Greengrass.

    Greengrass and Greg Goodman will produce the film.

    The author and the filmmaker confirmed the alliance

    “Needless to say, I’m a Paul Greengrass fan and think he’s a wonderful choice for this film,” said King.

    Added Greengrass: “Fairy Tale is a work of genius. A classic adventure story and also a disturbing contemporary allegory,” Greengrass most recently directed the underrated News Of The World.

    you are and happy belated b-day man. movies yeah have given me headaches if they are too loud if i go and see them that's one thing but the way it was shot that damn camera shook so damn much that it was shaking in scenes that didn't call for it.
    whoever invented the idea that shaky cam needed to rely tension in a film needs to be kicked as hard as possible in the nuts if it was a guy. if they want to learn how to build tension do it through music if there's suppose to be tension a good example would be any of the Lethal Weapon films. hell CSI Miami at some point started to use it for no reason i'd say halfway through the series.

    It’s a fairy-tale ending for Universal Pictures, which emerged from a heated auction to win Fairy Tale, an adaptation of the new Stephen King bestseller that Paul Greengrass will adapt and direct.

    Greengrass will produce the film with Greg Goodman.

    Studios and streamers were all over this one since Deadline revealed that Greengrass would direct. Key to the deal making at Uni is the strong relationship Greengrass has at the studio and with Universal Filmed Entertainment Group chairman Donna Langley. Greengrass directed the Bourne films, United 93 and most recently the Tom Hanks starrer News of the World at the studio.

    Just published by Scribner, King’s Fairy Tale follows a 17-year-old boy who inherits the keys to a terrifying world where good and evil are at war, and the stakes could not be higher — for that world or ours — as he journeys into the mythic roots of human storytelling.

    Said King, “Needless to say, I’m a Paul Greengrass fan and think he’s a wonderful choice for this film.”

    Greengrass called the book “a work of genius — a classic adventure story and also a disturbing contemporary allegory.”

    King is repped by Rand Holston Management and Gang Tyre Ramer. Greengrass is repped by CAA and Goodman Genow.

    News of the world was a great movie. I have not started to read this because I have other items on my plate, but hopefully this will be a good book to film translation.

    Like most King books, this one is going to be tough to adapt to the movies. There are some things that work in King's fictional world that don't translate well to the screen. It can be done but the misses are more frequent than the hits. And it's not just a matter of being true to the book. In fact, many of the best King films are ones that departed from the book. But hope springs eternal!

    as i've always said it just depends on who the writer is and the director is, part of it is they have to have the heart and love of Stephen king and isn't into just making money but really do want to make the film, i think a lot of the time it's them doing the film cause it's just another job to them. they lack the passion is the term i'm looking for i think that's why i think they fail so much

    That's good to hear. Idk why it gives me Gaiman's The Graveyard Book vibes.

    Maybe I'll add it to my Christmas wish list.
