Disney gets going on their own live-action Snow White

08.03.2011

Now that there are two big-budget live-action versions of the classic fairy tale SNOW WHITE racing each other to the theaters, what we really need is... another one.

Disney is pushing forward with THE ORDER OF THE SEVEN, their martial arts variation of the story. Commercial director Michael Gracey will put the heroine into action.

The project, originally titled SNOW AND THE SEVEN, has actually been in the works for years (and often rewritten). It started out as an "East meets West" take on the tale, set in a British colony in China during the late 19th century and following a young woman believed by Shaolin monks to hold the key to the future within her deathblow-dealing hands.

Heat Vision says: "While the project is set in China, the warriors will be from locales near (the U.S.) and far (Russia), and each warrior will have a unique fighting style."

Francis Lawrence (I AM LEGEND, CONSTANTINE) and kung fu maestro Woo-ping Yuen (THE MATRIX, IRON MONKEY) had each previously been attached to direct. TOY STORY 3 screenwriter Michael Arndt is the latest to take a stab at the script.

Meanwhile, Disney faces competition from SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN (due in June) and Relativity's SNOW WHITE, hitting first in March.

Extra Tidbit: Odd that the studio behind the iconic animated version of the fairy tale would be late to the party...

Revisit the idea in five to ten years, Disney. You dropped the ball on the idea. Now it is too late.

While this sounds INCREDIBLY unnecessary and frankly pretty ridiculous, I've learned that there's no such thing as too much Michael Arndt, so I'm somewhat interested I suppose.

Odd that they are showing up to the party at all. They already made their version and its a classic.

"Hey lets do a live action Lion King, with actual people, and have it set in Antartica" hmm, okay.

But, who knows?
