Helmer Hired for Snow and the Seven


Helmer Hired for Snow and the Seven


Walt Disney Pictures has appointed "Constantine" director Francis Lawrence to helm its long-gestating fantasy adventure "Snow and the Seven."

After struggling to get "Snow and the Seven" into the surface, Walt Disney Pictures finally is bringing the project into another phase of development as the studio has successfully tapped veteran music-video director Francis Lawrence to handle helming matters on the flick.

A live action East-meets-West take on the "Snow White" fairy tale, the fantasy adventure focuses on a British girl raised in 19th century Hong Kong who realizes that her destiny is to conquer an evil force. This thus leads her to get prepared to fight under the tutelage of seven Shaolin monks.

Script originally was entrusted to Josh Harmon and Scott Elder to work on but the task later got shifted to writing duo Scott Moore and Jon Lucas instead. Filming is being eyed to take start next year with Yuen Woon-ping serving as the fight choreographer and Scott Rudin and Andrew Gunn both producing.
