Nutcracker action flick?

12.05.2009

Seems like the key to getting a movie made now is to take something familiar -- and perhaps more importantly, in the public domain -- and put a "fresh" spin on it.

Like, say, an action version of the the Nutcracker ballet? Sure, whatever.

New Line has grabbed a pitch for just such a re-imagining of THE NUTCRACKER AND THE MOUSE KING, based on Tchaikovsky's famous music and E.T.A. Hoffman's dark fantasy story about a young girl whisked away to the Land of Toys to help her animated nutcracker defeat the seven-headed Mouse King. Okay, that's actually wild enough to make a trippy action flick...

The update comes from writer Darren Lante, who already played with fair-game fairy tales with Bryan Singer's project JACK THE GIANT KILLER and SHREK FOREVER AFTER.

Extra Tidbit: All right... let's hear some clever taglines.
