Disney’s Live-Action Snow White Adds Girl on the Train Writer

Disney’s been on a bit of a live-action kick lately. “The Jungle Book,” “Cinderella,” and “Maleficent” are just some of the films that have been getting real-life makeovers as of late courtesy of the House of Mouse, and it seems they’ll be continuing this tradition with the upcoming “Beauty and the Beast.” Well, the studio will be off to adapt another animated classic — “Snow White.”

Entertainment Weekly has now confirmed that Disney is aiming to turn the timeless “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” into a live-action musical. Eric Cressida Wilson, who recently just adapted “The Girl on the Train” into a motion picture, is in negotiations to write the script. According to EW, the film will expand upon the story and music from Disney’s first-ever animated feature film.

So far, Disney has tapped Benj Pasek and Justin Paul to write the new musical’s songs. They’ve both recently worked together on the lyrics for the upcoming Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone film “La La Land,” and are also working on Hugh Jackman’s newest musical, “Greatest Showman.” They also have a musical set to open on Broadway, titled “Dear Evan Hansen.” “Mary Poppins Returns’” Marc Platt has boarded the film as a producer.

“Snow White’ is just the tip of the iceberg, as Disney plans to create a stable of live-action adaptations. “Cruella” (starring Emma Stone) and “Think” (starring Reese Witherspoon) are just a few of the studios’ live-action films currently in production. “Mulan,” “The Lion King,” and “Aladdin” also have live-action remakes in the works.
