    NEW DIRECTOR AND TITLE FOR DISNEY'S VERSION OF SNOW WHITE MOVIE


    Looks like there is no stopping for Hollywood to adapt or to reimagining the Snow White properties! After the public duel between Universal Picture and Relativity Media on their productions for their own Snow White version, Walt Disney is another company making into the scene with what many speculated will be the third Snow White-related movie. It becomes reality today when Walt Disney announced a new title, new director and refreshing the plot synopsis, for which all details are available after the break.

    Walt Disney’s long abandoned Snow White project (since 2002 as a matter of fact) hits the refresh button today. Six months ago Michael Arndt was hired to write a script for the project and it seems likely that the script has caught the attention of the studio. As a result, Walt Disney has announced that the title has been changed to The Order of the Seven (previously entitled Snow and the Seven). Michael Gracey, a renowned commercial director has been signed to direct.

    The Snow White-related project will however, focus primarily on the seven dwarfs rather than Snow white herself. The plot for The Order of the Seven sounds like this:
    "The seven are a 19th century-set disparate band of international warriors belonging to a centuries-old order who have lost their way. Their meeting with an Englishwoman being chased by an ancient evil is the catalyst for their redemption. While the project is set in China, the warriors will be from locales near (the U.S.) and far (Russia), and each warrior will have a unique fighting style."

    After reading the synopsis, it is clear that Walt Disney is ditching Snow White for the dwarfs. The reason is pretty simple – Walt Disney does not want to join the public feud between Snow White and the Huntsman (Universal) and Tarsem Singh’s Snow White (Relativity Media). This is imminent as their decision to change the title to The Order of the Seven serves as a separate entity from those two projects. Nevertheless, this still marks the third Snow White-related movie that would be coming out in the future. It appears that the filming will commence next year.

    Things got pretty complicated because of the co-running Snow White projects on the Hollywood. Otherwise, read this again to refresh your memory.
