“Toy Story 3” scribe agrees to pen Snow White reboot


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: There are so many Snow White projects working their way down the pipeline, from one that hopes to cast “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart in the lead to another that sticks more closely to the Brothers’ Grimm fairy tale. Now a third takes a step closer to legitimacy by hiring an Oscar-nominated writer.

That would be “Toy Story 3” writer Michael Arndt, who also wrote “Little Miss Sunshine” and has agreed to pen “Snow and the Seven” for Disney, according to THR.

Yet according to the report, this “Snow” seems to have more in common with “Mulan” than the fairest fairy tale of them all. For instance, this one is set in 19th century China.

“The unique project, which Disney has been developing since 2002, centers on a 19th century Englishwoman who returns to her Hong Kong home for her father’s funeral, only to discover that her stepmother is plotting against her. She escapes to mainland China, finding solace among a rogue band of seven international warriors,” THR reports.

As of right now, “I Am Legend” director Francis Lawrence is scheduled to direct. A long time ago, Natalie Portman was rumored to want to star, but she has so many projects on and off screen keeping her busy, that it isn’t a guarantee. We’ll continue to track as the project rolls along, but bringing Arndt on board is a tremendous idea.
