The Tale of Tales, a fairy tale-inspired film with a gorgeous trailer (below), has been acquired by IFC. Directed by Matteo Garone, the film stars Salma Hayek, John C. Reilly, Toby Jones, and Vincent Cassel.

The synopsis:

Once upon a time there were three neighboring kingdoms each with a magnificent castle, from which ruled kings and queens, princes and princesses. One king was a fornicating libertine, another captivated by a strange animal, while one of the queens was obsessed by her wish for a child. Sorcerers and fairies, fearsome monsters, ogres and old washerwomen, acrobats and courtesans are the protagonists of this loose interpretation of the celebrated tales of Giambattista Basile.

From the trailer (which I can’t stop watching), it kind of looks like a cross between The Neverending Story and Pan’s Labyrinth.
