Prince CharmingThe trend of turning animated fairy tales into live-action movies continues, this time with a different kind of character at the center — a dude!

Variety reports that Disney has bought a script by Matt Fogel that tells the story of Prince Charming. Details are scarce, but the movie is being described as a comedy from the point of view of Charming's brother, who never lived up to the family name.

This Prince Charming project, should it move forward, would join a long list of live-action fairy tales in recent years. It all started in 2010 with the blockbuster hit "Alice in Wonderland," and since then, we've gotten "Maleficent" and "Cinderella." Coming next are "Beauty and the Beast" with Emma Watson and "Alice Through the Looking Glass."

These live-action fairy tale re-imaginings have focused on female protagonists, so it's interesting to see a male character — one whose never made much of an impression, other than being handsome, rich, and royal — get his turn in the spotlight.
