The success of this year's Alice in Wonderland has the fairy tale genre hotter than ever and Relativity Media is setting up a brand new version of another classic tale. Deadline New York is reporting that Brett Ratner is setting up a brand new version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, simply titled Snow White.
Melisa Wallack (Meet Bill) wrote the script and it was said that there were still several similarities to the original film, with a young woman being poisoned by the evil witch's apple, there are several updated aspects to the story as well.
"This is not your grandfather's Snow White," Ratner said. "Melisa went back to the 500 year old folk tale and put in some of the things that were missing from Walt Disney's film. His dwarves were miners, and here they are robbers. There is also a dragon that was in the original folk tale. Walt made one of the great movies of all time, but ours is edgy and there is more comedy. The original, made for its time, was soft compared to what we're going to do."
