Disney is about to entirely change a beloved classic. And that might not be a bad thing.
The Hollywood Reporter relays that the studio is in talks with Oscar-nominated 'Toy Story 3' screenwriter Michael Arndt to write a film tentatively titled 'Snow And The Seven,' a radical retelling of the classic fairy tale.
In the new, live action film, Snow White will be an Englishwoman who goes to Hong Kong for her father's funeral -- where she realizes that her evil stepmother is out to get her. That's when she heads to mainland China, where she meets not lovable (if grumpy) dwarves, but renowned warriors.
So who could take on such a role? Thus far, it's Oscar favorite Natalie Portman, who is showing off her action chops in the upcoming 'Your Highness.' She has experience with classic franchises already, starring as Amidala in the 'Star Wars' prequels. The only question is whether she'll be able to participate -- she is, of course pregnant. One of the warriors she would meet would be played by Jet Li.
This is just one of a number of Snow White-inspired reboots planned for the big screen. Kristen Stewart is rumored to be starring as the princess in the dark 'Snow White And The Huntsman,' while another film, 'The Brothers Grimm: Snow White' is being produced -- coincidentally, that one also had Natalie Portman as a potential star.
