Some news on the 3rd Snow White film from The Hollywood Reporter:

Quote:
Disney's 'Order of the Seven' Lands Director

While Universal and Relativity jockey over their rival Snow White movies, Disney is quietly making moves on its own revisionist Snow White feature, a live-action project now called The Order of the Seven.

Commercials director and visual effects wizard Michael Gracey has been chosen as the man to helm what is being envisioned as China-set epic. Francis Lawrence (Water for Elephants, I Am Legend), who was attached to the project for several years, has moved on.

Andrew Gunn is producing the movie, which earlier this year got a refurbished script from Toy Story 3 scribe Michael Arndt.

The unique project, which Disney has been developing since 2002, focuses a bit more on Snow’s seven companions, who aren't as cute and jolly as in the 1937 classic Disney animated film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. In fact, the project, which was initially known as Snow and the Seven and had scripts by writers ranging from Michael Chabon to Jayson Rothwell, is evolving into more of an original action film, with the Snow White elements being minimized.

In this iteration, the seven are a 19th century-set disparate band of international warriors belonging to a centuries-old order who have lost their way. Their meeting with an Englishwoman being chased by an ancient evil is the catalyst for their redemption.

While the project is set in China, the warriors will be from locales near (the U.S.) and far (Russia), and each warrior will have a unique fighting style.

Gracey was an animator at Animal Logic, the company that worked on Happy Feet, before teaming up with a fellow visual effects artist to embark on a commercials career that led to award-winning spots for T-Mobile and Lipton.

Sources say that Gracey’s next step, after completing a deal, will to begin storyboarding the movie while designs of characters are made and fights are choreographed. The plan is to start production start next year. Gracey is repped by CAA, Partizan and Hirsch Wallerstein.

Relativity's still-untitled Snow White film, starring Lily Collins as Snow and Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen, is scheduled to be release on March 16. Universal's grittier Snow White and the Huntsman, starring Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron, will hit theaters on June 1.

^I think Portman was attached at some point, but I don't know if she still is.
This film has been in the works for 9 years.

OMG seriously another one.

I will finally say it - Hollywood has run out of ideas.

The third one has been in development since 2002, so technically it was there first.
But yes, there are three.

I don't get why are they making 3 films with same title in one year. This is just ridiculous.

I wonder if they'll count each other out and all fail. Disney has copyrights, correct? If so then why would they allow 3 to be in production? seems a little trigger happy imo.

^ You're probably right but the titles alone are pretty much the same(?) and even if they are slightly different, if the storyline is the "Snow White story" then I don't know if the title matters.
I don't know, don't mind me I'm just confused about the whole thing tbh. I feel like it's over kill no matter what. Who wants to see 3 movies essentially about the same topic? I guess that's more my confusion and I'm pretty sure Disney, being a massive company has broad copyright terms for their films,the titles, marketing etc etc.

Also, technically, I think anyone can make a "Snow White" movie because it wasn't created by Disney. The story has been around for centuries before Disney created the famed movie. Although, I suppose if they were to directly take ideas from the original Disney film then a lawsuit would be in order. However, my feeling is, don't people think that three Snow White films is a bit much? Are there no other stories that are worth telling? And that would be far more interesting and probably more important to tell? Honestly, seeing that three stories with the same character from different production companies is probably a sign that Hollywood needs to step up it's game. Get some new talent and idea's onto the cinema screen.

^I agree. I remember reading a rumor there are 2 Sleeping Beauty movies in the works so clearly something is off.
