Michael Arndt Leaves Pixar To Write Snow White

Postby bryanbmp » Wed Feb 02, 2011 4:45 pm

Michael Arndt Moves to Snow and the Seven

Disney's live-action version of their famous Snow White has found a writer in Toy Story 3's Michael Arndt and an intriguing set-up for the retelling: this version will take place in 19th Century China with the title Snow and the Seven.



Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend, Constantine) is still attached to direct and Natalie Portman has, apparently, expressed interest in starring, though her casting may now be complicated by the actress' pregnancy.

Ugh, a Snow White remake? Fantastic. Well, as long as Arndt is doing what he wants to do.

I can't say I'm really that disappointed by this... Alice is one of my favorite films, so to have a similar film in development with Mr. Ardnt writing the screenplay is like heaven to me! :D

I sort of agree with you. I love the original SW, but most people don't seem to. It's too "boring". :roll: However, I hope it's not too similar to the Universal remake.

This could be good, but it's seems like another example of a reboot of a franchise that includes the same exact title minus 1-3 words.

(The Fast and the Furious, Final Destination, etc.)

I'd be rolling my eyes if Arndt weren't in on this. I do love Disney's original Snow White, and this sounds like it could have a really interesting story but I could imagine it happening how most hollywood movies happen, too.

Now that there will be 2 Snow White films confirmed to be released next year, I guess Disney should look for a different project...

I really liked both of Arndt's previous works (Little Miss Sunshine & Toy Story 3). So I'll be very interested to see if his screenplay of Snow White lives up to the previous two.

Previous 2? What's the other one besides the Disney one? I'd like to see it. :D

Anyway, I'm not really sure I have any interest in this movie. Maybe when there's more information.
