BRETT RATNER PREPARING A NEW LIVE ACTION ADAPTATION OF "SNOW WHITE"

We'll definitely be seeing a lot of fairy tales on the big screen in the future. Beside already announced "Cinderella", "Jack The Giant Killer", "Wizard of Oz" and "Maleficent", and already successful "Alice in Wonderland", it seems "Snow White" will get a live action movie as well. According to "Deadline New York", director Brett Ratner is preparing the live action adaptation of "Snow White".
In the new movie, a young woman will still get poisoned by the evil witch's apple, but there will also be several updated aspects to the story. The plot will be more connected to the 500 year old folk tale and will put in some of the things that were missing from Walt Disney's film. His dwarves were miners, and here they will be robbers. There is also a dragon that was in the original folk tale. This new "Snow White" is going to be more edgy, with more comedy.

  3. I remember reading Snow White as a kid - definitely not Disney's version. I'll look forward to seeing that movie.

    Thanks for your nice comment on my blog.

  4. This shot is breathtakingly beautiful and Rachel looks stunning as Snow White. Love the story, because it's darker than most Disney stories. It will be a hit!

  5. Brett Ratner = The Last Stand of Snow White in Rush Hour of Seven Dwarfs :))
    Dezmy, they're going to ruin this fairy tale, and I don't surprise if in the final it was Snow White who poisoned the queen, prince and all the dwarfs.

  6. Most of Disney's movies softened the original story.

    be welcome, you really have a kingdom of positive energy over there :)

    @Neb
    it's a part of the famous Ennie Leibovitz photo shooting in which she made photos of celebrities as fairy tale heroes. You've already seen Scarlet as Cinderella and Drew as Beauty and the Beast, but I have a lot more of those pics waiting to be used when the appropriate story appears :)

    @Jaccsy
    yep, I already feel sorry for the poor dwarfs :)

    @Alex
    kids need softer stories.

    @Veronica
    I guess it's better than all these vampires that are the part of the current trend :)

  15. I don't like what they're trying to do with dwarves. Robbers? Bandits?
    Well, I guess honest, hardworking miners were not "edgy" or entertaining enough. :( I understand their reasons, but they didn't need to make them criminals just to make them more interesting.

    It kinda reminds me of use of that little girl in Kick-Ass.
    Sure, it's entertaining, but it leaves a sour taste behind it.

  16. It'll be interesting to watch what was the 'original' tale because I only know the Disney version.

    Will SnowWhite be played by Rachel Weisz? The woman in the pic, looks like her to me...

    (oh, hello Dezmond! ;) )

  17. No, Lurker, Rachel is just a part of the Annie Leibovitz photo shoot in which she was photographing celebs as fairy tale characters, so I just used that pic to illustrate the story :) But she would be great in the role.

    Welcome to HOLLYWOOD SPY. Hope we'll be seeing you here often ;)
