As you know, Disney's in the early stages of a live-action renaissance, which means that the next decade or so is probably going to be heavy remake-heavy for the Mouse House. They've got Tim Burton working on Dumbo, Guy Ritchie working on Aladdin, Jon Favreau working on The Lion King, and the great Bill Condon's Beauty And The Beast arrives in March. Believe me when I say that many more are on the way.
Oh, look. Here's one now.
Disney is ready to take on another of its classic fairytales with a new musical, live-action version of Snow White.
Erin Cressida Wilson, who penned the adaptation of The Girl on the Train, is in negotiations to write the script for the film, which will expand upon the story and music from the beloved animated classic. The new film will include new songs, with songwriters Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, who most recently wrote the lyrics for La La Land, attached to pen the new music.
That's The Hollywood Reporter, breaking the story that Snow White will become the next animated Disney film to recieve the live-action treatment. As of now, no director or stars are attached to the project, but I'm sure we'll be hearing something about that once the script's been finalized.
What say you, folks? Looking forward to this one? Burned out after Snow White And The Hunstman and Mirror, Mirror and that one super-weird horror take on Snow White from the 90s (you know the one)? Sound off in the comments section below.
