According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney's oldest fairy tale is getting a Far East reworking for their upcoming movie.
Say goodbye to those silly dwarves - the "Order of the Seven" will be a warrior-focused version of the legend, in which an English woman goes to Hong Kong for her father's funeral and meets a band of seven international fighters. Upon realizing her evil stepmother is plotting her murder, she turns to the warriors for protection.
Astoundingly, that means there are now three Snow White movies in the making. In addition to Disney’s project, Relativity's still-untitled film - slated for March release - will feature Lily Collins as Snow White and Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen.
Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron star in Universal's grittier “Snow White and the Huntsman,” hitting theaters on June 1.
