Is Potter‘s Yates Developing A Fables Movie?

If you read the news of Imagine Entertainment optioning Legends: The Enchanted and thought, “Wait, isn’t that a darker version of Fables? Why doesn’t someone make a movie out of that?” Then here’s a fun rumor: A Harry Potter veteran may be doing that very thing.

Pajiba is reporting that Potter director David Yates may be developing a movie based on Bill Willingham’s series for Warner Bros, or in some way involved with the project. To date, no Fables movie has been officially announced – as Pajiba notes, it was at one time in development as a TV show for ABC, but that is assumed to be dead – but, given the success of the source material, it would make sense for DC Entertainment to consider it for big screen treatment, and Yates has shown he can handle magical material with ease. While the site makes it clear that this is just a rumor, here’s hoping that it’s one that comes true.
