The news that Disney are set to remake one of their all-time classic properties would generally be met with a sad sigh and a simple shrug of the shoulders. However, their plans for Snow White do at least sound a little different.
Set in China, The Order Of The Seven will reimagine Snow White’s vertically-challenged pals as a septet of 19th Century warriors who belong to a faltering, centuries-old order. When they stumble across a young woman in peril, the opportunity presents itself to restore glory to their kind.
Advert director and visual effects whizz Michael Gracey has been placed at the helm, replacing I Am Legend’s Francis Lawrence, whilst Toy Story 3’s Michael Arndt has been hard at work on a tweaked version of the script. Gracey will soon begin storyboarding the film, with no release date in sight as yet.
The film is one of three Snow White projects currently in development, alongside Relativity’sstill untitled project, and Universal’s Snow White And The Huntsman.
The latter film is expected to be a dark, action-orientated take on the fairy tale, with Rupert Sanders directing an all-star cast including Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron. It’s set to arrive in cinemas on 1 June 2012.
