Director Tarsem Singh has explained why he made "" a fun-loving family movie instead of giving it his signature dark twist. The Indian filmmaker, who is famously known for directing various R-rated movies, said that if he decided to create a darker version of Snow White film, he would make it a "really hard R" film.
"Everybody that knew me said, 'Don't even give him the script'," Singh told Collider about how he's first involved in the Snow White film. "But, the moment it came to me, I said, 'Yes', without blinking. I just looked at it and said, 'If you're looking for a gritty, redefining, dark tale, I have no interest in it. By the time I'd be done with that, it would be a really hard R. I'd like to make a family movie out of this."
