3 Snow Whites & The 21 Dwarves3.02.11 # News # 4 Comments
Fairy Tales are hot right now. They’re like, the new board games.
Okay, so, Red Riding Hood is coming up from the director of Twilight, starring Amanda Seyfried. Hansel and Gretel: With Hunters is also gearing up, starring Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner. I’m sorry, Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner. And now, in addition to Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman and Relativity’s The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, Disney are developing Snow and the Seven.
That’s right, not one, not two, but three movies about the same fairy tale are in the pipeline. Hollywood logic at its finest. If it’s hot right now, or we think it might be hot soon, then we have to have one. Even if it’s the EXACT SAME ONE. This takes the whole Dueling Movies thing to a whole new level. This is madness!
Snow White and the Huntsman is set to star Kristen Stewart, Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron; The Brothers Grimm: Snow White is to be directed by Tarsem; and Disney’s new spin on the tale sees Snow White visiting Hong Kong. Do any of these float our boat? I expect Tarsem’s will be something special. Well, as special as it can be in this situation…
