Here's another book which has been sold for movie adaptation before its official release: BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP, the novel
So, it's official, visual genius Tarsem Singh (THE FALL, THE CELL, IMMORTALS) will direct Relativity Media's SNOW WHITE film. Rivaling Universal's SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, this film will be more close to the traditional story in which Snow White bands together with a gang of seven quarrelsome dwarves to reclaim what is rightly hers after her evil stepmother kills her father and destroys the kingdom.
Here's an interesting cast: Orlando Bloom, Saoirse Ronan, Emma Thompson and Imelda Staunton will star in the period drama EFFIE about Effie Gray, the wife of English art critic John Ruskin, who became entangled in a famous Victorian love triangle. Without consummating the relationship, Effie Gray left her husband, had the marriage annulled, and married John Ruskin's protégé John Everett Millais, the famous painter.
