Los Angeles, .- The filmmaker Marc Webb is negotiating his signing as director of the new film about Snow White that prepares Disney with the incentive that this time will not be an animated film but will have real actors, reported on Thursday Variety specialized.
Webb’s varied filmography includes romantic comedy titles such as “500 Days of Summer” (2009), starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel; and superhero movies such as “The Amazing Spider-Man” (2012) and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” (2014), which cast Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.
Webb has also devoted much of his career to television in series such as “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” or “Limitless”.
Erin Cressida Wilson, who wrote the film “The Girl on the Train” (2014), is also in talks with Disney to sign the script of this film that has not yet confirmed performers and that will bring a new look to the classic of animation “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (1937).
With real actors and musical numbers, the film will feature new songs composed by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who already worked for the successful film “La La Land” (2016).
“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”, based on a story by the Grimm brothers, was the first feature film by the Disney studio and over the years became a fundamental film in the history of animation.
Snow White’s narrative has been the subject of some modern versions such as those of the films “Mirror Mirror” (2012), with the actresses Julia Roberts and Lily Collins; or “Snow White and the Huntsman” (2012), with Kristen Stewart.
In recent years, Disney has placed as a central part of its strategy the adaptation of its animation successes with real actors or using new techniques of digital recreation.
Thus, the study obtained very good results of criticism and box office with “The Jungle Book” (2016) and “Beauty and The Beast” (2017).
This year he has already premiered “Dumbo”, with Tim Burton in the director’s chair, and “Aladdin”, with Guy Ritchie in charge of the operations, while on July 24 he will present “The Lion King”, with Jon Favreau as producer. (EFEUSA)
