Walt Disney Pictures developing live action Snow White adaption

You can add another fairy tale adaptation to the list of movies Walt Disney Pictures' are giving the live action treatment. News arrives via Variety that the Mouse House have turned their eye towards their animated classic, Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs (1937).

The studio have approached Erin Cressida Wilson (The Girl On The Train) to develop a new script and tunesmiths Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land) are in discussions to write some new songs for what will once again be a musical that channels some of the classics (we would expect to hear Whistle While You Work), and producer Marc Platt (Drive) is overseeing development.

This one is at an early stage and there is no director or casting attached as yet. There is a chance Snow White could be beaten to the screen by her lesser-known fairy tale sister, Rose Red, whose movie is already in the works at the studio.

It would certainly appear as though their entire back catalogue of animated outings is being considered for a live action remake. Next up for the company is Bill Condon's (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) Beauty And The Beast, which arrives on 17 March next year.
