Tarsem Singh’s direction might have been the most interesting thing about Jennifer Lopez thriller The Cell, and now he’s signed on to a project that’ll give him even more scope to come up with eye-popping visuals: A 3D reimagining of the Snow White fairytale.
The Wrap reports that Singh will direct The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, an “edgy, modernized reimagining” of the familar story that will restore some of the darker elements of the original versions of the fairy tale for Relativity Media. In a positive development, Singh apparently wants an unknown for the title role, instead of Relativity’s choice of the soon-to-be-overexposed Natalie Portman. The film, which changes the seven dwarves into seven thieves equally eager to help Snow out, is one of three competing Snow White movies in pre-production, alongside Snow White and The Huntsman and Disney’s Snow White And The Seven, which turns the dwarves into Shaolin monks.
