Saoirse Ronan to Lead The Order of the Seven

ON

Saoirse Ronan appears set to lead The Order of the Seven, Variety reports.

The Walt Disney film, to be directed by Michael Gracey, was formerly titled Snow and the Seven and was originally planned to be a re-telling of “Snow White” set in 19th Century China and dealing with an Englishwoman who is protected by a band of international warriors. While the basic plot remains the same, the new article suggests that direct references to “Snow White” are no longer planned.

Ronan appeared in last year’s Hanna and can soon be seen in the vampire tale Byzantium and the Stephenie Meyer adaptation The Host.
