The classic children’s fairy tale, “Snow White” will be getting an updated live-action retelling courtesy of Brett Ratner and Relativity Media, Deadline reports.
The new version, said to take an “edgy” and comedic look at the original Brothers Grimm story will come from a script written by Melisa Wallack, whose sole produced credit is the 2007 Aaron Eckhart film Bill, which Wallack co-directed.
Claiming, “This is not your grandfather’s ‘Snow White,'” Ratner promises a departure from the Disney version of the film.
“His dwarves were miners, and here they are robbers. There is also a dragon that was in the original folk tale… [O]urs is edgy and there is more comedy. The original, made for its time, was soft compared to what we’re going to do.”
Ratner will produce alongside Wallack’s Bill co-director, Bernie Goldmann.
