Entertainment juggernauts Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey are teaming up to develop a live-action Hansel and Gretel movie according to Variety. Their version of the film will be adapting an upcoming graphic novel penned by celebrated writer Neil Gaiman.
His Hansel and Gretel boasts ink illustrations from fine artist Lorenzo Mattotti, and it’s set to hit bookshelves on October 28th.
Something tells me that we should look for more collaborations from Spielberg & Winfrey; the two recently partnered on the The Hundred-Foot Journey which has been a success. The film was developed on a budget of $22 million and in it’s first four week in theaters earned $41 million and counting.
