**SIGH**. Per The Hollywood Reporter:
Who’s the fairest of them all?
Disney is ready to take on another of its classic fairytales with a new musical, live-action version of Snow White.
Erin Cressida Wilson, who penned the adaptation of The Girl on the Train, is in negotiations to write the script for the film, which will expand upon the story and music from the beloved animated classic.
The movie will include new songs, with songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who most recently wrote the lyrics for La La Land, attached to pen the new music.
Marc Platt, who also is working with Disney on Mary Poppins Returns, is attached to produce.
Disney’s original Snow White animated film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs came out in 1937. Based on the Brothers Grimm fairytale, Snow White was Disney’s first animated feature film and a massive success for the studio. It won an honorary Oscar at the 11th Academy Awards and is considered one of, if not the most, successful animated films of all time.
There have been several other adaptations of the classic tale over the years, of course. Two more recent attempts include the 2012 film Mirror Mirror, starring Julia Roberts and Lily Collins, and Universal’s darker take, Snow White and the Huntsman, starring Kristen Stewart. Snow White also is a character on the TV series Once Upon a Time.
But where’s our live-action The Princess And The Frog movie (and I’ll keep writing that until it happens)?
