‘Game Of Thrones’ & ‘Lord Of The Rings’ Star Sean Bean To Be King In New ‘Snow White’
  |  @   |  

The most active of the many Snow White projects as of late is Universal Pictures’ Snow White and the Huntsman, but let’s not forget the other high–profile Snow White projects being developed: Disney’s Snow and the Seven is still on the way, and Relativity Media also has one on the way that’s putting together its own decent cast.

The movie was once called The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, but is now said to be “untitled,” so it’s unclear whether that title is still in play. This version of the fable stars The Blind Side and Abduction actress Lily Collins as Snow, with Julia Roberts playing her evil stepmother and Queen, and The Social Network and new Lone Ranger Armie Hammer playing her prince charming–type love interest.

Now the man you have to cast if you have the chance to cast him, Sean Bean, has been added to the party. Bean is in final negotiations to play the role of the King and father to Snow White.

And here we are again!

Upcoming films based on the tale of Snow White are all moving their pieces into place in an attempt to keep up with their competitors. We’ve heard about Universal Pictures’ Snow White and the Huntsman lining up stars such as Charlize Theron, Viggo Mortensen, and Kristen Stewart for potential roles. Then came word that Disney, who’s coming back with another take on the story they used for the 1937 animated classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs titled Snow and the Seven, had hired the writer of Toy Story 3 to pen their script.

Being sure to keep pace with the others, Relativity Media’s adaptation of the tale, titled The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, has acquired the services of a big name talent. In a press release sent out by the studio, they’ve announced that Julia Roberts has joined their film, and she will be playing their Evil Queen character.

As was completely expected, Disney classics and fairy tale reinventions are continuing to grow toward being the next big craze.

Alice in Wonderland of course got a new live-action/motion-capture makeover and Johnny Depp, and went on to pull down over a billion dollars worldwide. Since then, we’ve heard that a new take on the evil Sleeping Beauty villain called Maleficent was on the way, and that a new live-action take on the tale of Cinderella was in motion as well.

Now comes word via Deadline that a brand new version of Snow White is now in the making. Relativity Media has preemptively acquired the rights to The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, which is a script penned by Melisa Wallack (Bill). The script is said to be a lot more faithful to the 500-year-old folk tale that Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was based on, and that it will be much more edgy and funnier.
