Weinsteins and Jim Henson Co. team up for Unstable Fables

Q: What do you get when you mix the Jim Henson Company, the Weinstein brothers, Roger S.H. Schulman (one of the writers of Shrek) and CGI fairytales?

A: Unstable Fables

No puppets in this direct-to-DVD project, but plenty of CGI.

The stories being adapted are Goldilocks, The Three Little Pigs and The Three Billy Goats Gruff.

The Jim Henson Company’s involvement is on the development and animation side of things – but then they’re certainly busy right now with updates to two films (The Dark Crystal & Labyrinth) and manga comics of those properties as well.

Plus, Henson already has some background in the short-form retelling of fairytales: The Storyteller and The Storyteller: Greek Myths.

Check out the Variety story.
