Three Snow White Movies in the Works

By Maryann Yin 

Beginning in 2012, three different adaptations of Snow White will hit theaters: The Brothers Grimm: Snow White (2012), Snow White and the Huntsman (2012), and Snow and the Seven (2013).

According to The Film Stage, the first will have a “darkly comedic flare;” the second will focus on the Huntsman character, and the final film will feature martial arts action (The video embedded above shows a musical scene from the 1937 Disney version).

Casting rumors have emerged about two of the projects. Julia Roberts may appear in The Brothers Grimm: Snow White.

According to The Wrap, The Huntsman producers are courting Twilight actress Kristen Stewart (as Snow White) and The Lord of the Rings actor Viggo Mortensen (as the Huntsman). Monster actress Charlize Theron seems to be set for the role of the Evil Queen. Which Snow White will you be seeing? (via We Got This Covered)

The Brothers Grimm published a German version of the famous fairy tale in the 1800s. Several different accounts of the story exist; not all feature a magic mirror or seven cute dwarfs. Snow White is known all over the world in over 40 different languages.
