Bard Tales movie?
Dec. 8, 2008
A little while ago, "Harry Potter" overlord J.K. Rowling decided to write "Tales of Beedle the Bard", the formerly fictional book mentioned in the final installment in the series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows". Unsurprisingly, the limited edition books are selling like there's no tomorrow and now, the cool peeps over at "Cinema Blend" have learned that Warner Bros. is trying to figure out a way to bring these tales to the big screen. Because why the hell not. The book includes five stories - "The Wizard and the Hopping Pot", "The Fountain of Fair Fortune", "The Warlock's Hairy Heart", "Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump" and "The Tale of the Three Brothers" - and none are connected in any way so WB has their work cut out for them. But we're talking mad cash here so they'll undoubtedly figure that shit out.
||In Celtic society, a bard was a professional poet, paid by a monarch to praise the sovereign's activities, though through the years it's taken the meaning of an epic author/singer/narrator like say William Shakespeare, who's known as The Bard.
