Tarsem Singh

Last month we heard that Relativity Media was making strides with The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, one of many recent iterations of the classic fairytale currently in development. The financier turned pseudo-studio had made an offer to director Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) to helm the project. Now THR says the union is a done deal with Singh officially signed on to direct the new version of the familiar story with a script from Melisa Wallack. In this version, the story starts off with the evil stepmother killing Snow White's father and destroying the kingdom. Then our she must team-up with the infamous dwarves to reclaim what is rightly hers.

Like Universal's plan for Snow White and the Huntsman, Relativity is planning to start production early next year with an eye towards a March start date. Singh just wrapped The Immortals starring Mickey Rourke and Freida Pinto so he's ready to go, but a cast still needs to come together quite quickly. Universal seems to have a head start with rumors swirling around talent like Tom Hardy and Johnny Depp for the hunstman and Angelina Jolie or Charlize Theron for the evil queen Ravenna. Of course the coveted role for all these projects is the titular lead female role, and neither project seems to have figured out that important casting yet. Stay tuned as The Brothers Grimm: Snow White continues developing. Interested in Tarsem Singh's take on Snow White?

    is this the same thing Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Natalie Portman were working on? if its not does that mean there are 3 snow white projects going on at the same time?
  • Marty
    Perfect. Bring it on. Project worthy of Mr Tarsem's artistry and imagination. Spectacular results are a given.
  • I'd watch it, I dig his films. He's done some pretty interesting films with original stories before and he isn't pumping out the movies like some.
