In a story from Heat Vision, Brian Grazer and Ron Howard's Imagine Entertainment and Radical Pictures are getting together to develop the graphic novel Legends for the big screen.

This property brings together such characters as Red Riding Hood, Jack the Giant Killer and Hansel & Gretel in a very dark setting. No writer has yet been set to adapt, nor is Legends set up at a studio.

Legends begins when the remains of Pinocchio are found. "Red Hood, now a noted wolf hunter, and Jack partner to discover who is murdering the creatures of folklore. Along the way, they are assisted by characters such as Goldilocks, re-imagined as a mercenary, and Hansel & Gretel, now psychic exterminators."

Nick Percival created the Legends graphic novel which hits stores this month.
