Toy Story 3 Writer, Michael Arndt, Takes On Disney’s SNOW AND THE SEVEN
It seems like Snow White is in high demand with movie studios! Universal and Relativity both have projects in the works about the fairest of them all, and now Disney is getting ready to roll on their Snow White project: SNOW AND THE SEVEN.
The Hollywood Reporter states that Michael Arndt, the Oscar nominated scribe of Toy Story 3, is currently negotiating with the studio to pen the script.
Snow and the Seven takes a different look at the fairy tale we all know. In development since 2002, Disney is putting a spin on this version of Snow White by centering on a 19th century Englishwoman who returns home to Hong Kong for her father’s funeral. Once there, she discovers her stepmother is out to get her and takes off into China, where she meets up with a band of seven international warriors.
I’m pretty interested to see this one!
John Myhre, Oscar winner of Chicago and Memoirs of a Geisha is on board as Production designer, while Francis Lawrence is ready to direct!
As far as casting – Natalie Portman was initially going to be involved, but now with her pregnancy, it’s unclear if she will be able to continue since the part will be very physically demanding; and involved several different fighting styles.
