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.
