Since we almost forgot about them, Tarsem's Snow White movie will also have seven dwarfs

May. 25, 2011by: Dave Davis

In the commotion over the dueling SNOW WHITE movies' release date jockeying and gathering of attractive talent, we nearly overlooked the fact that there's barely been any mention of Snow's seven diminutive and (theoretically) platonic housemates.

But Relativity's version of the Grimm fairy tale will definitely have the septet of tuneful workers known by their single personality traits. The studio has rounded up little people Mark Povinelli (WATER FOR ELEPHANTS), Jordan Prentice (HAROLD AND KUMAR GO TO WHITE CASTLE), Danny Woodburn (WATCHMEN), Sebastian Saraceno (BEDTIME STORIES), Ronald Lee Clark (EPIC MOVIE), Martin Klebba (HANCOCK) and Joey Gnoffo (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN) to play their Seven Dwarfs.

The project, directed by Tarsem Singh (THE CELL, THE FALL), has also added Mare Winningham as Baker Margaret and Michael Lerner as Baron, joining stars Armie Hammer (THE SOCIAL NETWORK) as the Prince, Lily Collins (daughter of Phil) as Snow White, Julia Roberts as the evil Queen, and Nathan Lane as her servant. The movie recently shifted release to beat the competing SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN.

They describe this version as "a spectacular reimagining of the classic fairy tale, an evil queen steals control of a kingdom, and an exiled princess enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright in a spirited adventure comedy filled with jealousy, romance, and betrayal that will capture the imagination of audiences the world over. "

Extra Tidbit: The other version might have Charlize Theron and THOR star Chris Hemsworth, but this one is produced by Brett Ratner! That's way more awesome, right?

Sarcasm aside, Tarsem is a fantastic director, and I have huge hope for this movie.

If they got Peter Dinklage as well, they would've gotten every recognizable little person in Hollywood for this movie

I'm sure when both Snow White projects were announced Peter Dinklage had his agent send out a preemptive "Fuck-no" to all studios concerned.

actually, the dwarve's names are courtesy of Disney and not the Grimms...so to use them would be breaking copyright laws...

Here was Peter Dinklage's response

when he was invited to be a part of this movie:

"Have you ever had a dream with a dwarf in it? Do you know anyone who's had a dream with a dwarf in it? No! I don't even have dreams with dwarves in them. The only place I've seen dwarves in dreams is in stupid movies like this! "Oh make it weird, put a dwarf in it!". Everyone will go "Woah, this must be a fuckin' dream, there's a fuckin' dwarf in it!". Well I'm sick of it! You can take this dream sequence and stick it up your ass!"

Go watch

Go watch Living in Oblivion. Freakin' hilarious.
