Endorphin has provided me with some really interesting concepts that I hope he'll run by all those that are interested. Things that I am 100% on including in this is that it will be Darker (Like Brother's Grimm and American McGee's Alice), everything else I will collaborate with other creative minds (you guys).
Then I might as well post the ideas from the PM…
I think the Brothers Grimm movie has the right theme for this, which is a bit of a dark comedy that integrates a lot of the characters together. Another really good source of inspiration is Jim Henson’s ‘The Storyteller’, which already provides some great, dark twists on some fairy tales, that’s if anyone can get a hold of it. Also, the Shrek series provides a few ideas, where many of the main characters are thrown into a situation where they need to complete some kind of quest. One more thing that comes to mind is an old computer game called Kings Quest II, which had a lot of fairytale characters. Not sure how it could be used, but it’s out there. Depending on the scope of things, I think it would be really cool to rip some of the memorable characters out of their own fairy tales and dump them into a place where they can run riot.
The first idea that comes to mind, which I would like to play, is a raunchy, perverted Rumplestiltskin who chases the likes of Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, Cindarella Rapunzel, etc. An older guy with irrepressible energy and vigor, who has an insatiable appetite for fair maidens.
I can also imagine the likes of Tom Thumb, or some little pixie having a troublesome time of getting it on with Tinkerbell. Anyway, I suppose that really depends on who is interested and what ideas they have.
