Oh God, when they finally release this people are going to say they copied the version with Kristen Stewart because they are using the whole Snow White as a warrior deal. I thought this was dead since it's been years since we heard anything :idea:

It sounds terrible! I would love for Disney to do live action versions of their classics, but then the basic story and setting should be the same as in the original films.

Variety reported on Ronan’s negotiations for the long-gestating Order of Seven. Ronan would star as Olivia Sinclair, a British expat living in Hong Kong in the 19th century. Sinclair seeks protection from a group of warrior outlaws, who in turn seek her help in defeating an ancient, evil empress. The film, previously known as 'Snow and the Seven' and 'The Order of the Seven', has seen writers (such as Michael Chabon and Michael Arndt) come and go but looks to have a director set in commercials helmer, Michael Gracey. In an attempt to boost global interest, Disney is looking to cast well-known international stars in the roles of the warriors. Execs have already traveled to China, Russia and Japan in search of talent.

There are three older threads about this project back when it was called Snow and the Seven.

This is a joke. Who wants to see this?

Further proof Disney are creatively bankrupt. Russian, Japanese and Chinese? Give me a break. Might as well cast Brazilian and Indonesian too!

Pathetic.

Disney Halts Big-Budget 'Order of the Seven' Movie (Exclusive)
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-v ... vie-327912

Quote:
[...] Sources at Disney say that all development work is being stopped. That's an abrupt about-face, even though the project was not officially greenlit and the studio had not set a release date. The movie was in pre-production and expected to go before the cameras this year. Sources say that in the aftermath of the mega-budgeted John Carter failing at the box office in March, Disney has been scrutinizing budgets on its tentpole movies. The budget on this project while undisclosed, was high enough to give the studio pause. Having a first-time director involved contributed to the unease. Also adding to the uncertainty is the lack of a studio head.

It's a shame really. Had they gone forward with this project when it was originally proposed years ago it would not have faced the scrutiny of the swarm of fairytale reboots in movies and TV that we're getting now because this film would've come out first.

The premise sounded a lot more interesting too.

Personally, I'm glad this project has been stopped. With Mirror, Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman being released this year, not to mention TV shows like Once Upon A Time and Grimm, I think the general public will feel super tired of this story in particular.

If they want to put their money into a franchise that would be truly reliable, they should make National Treasure 3... just sayin

Yea Snow White is being done a loooot this year...not really so much with Grimm though.

I actually am afraid people will get tired of fairy tales in general for a while, but then again, the whole reason there's so many fairy tale remakes now is because people are apparently really interested in them now.

I really didn't like the sound of this movie, and honestly, both Mirror Mirror and Snow and the Huntsman are the same idea of Snow White becoming a warrior with the guys who protect her and going back to fight the queen, and isn't that what this movie's about, too?

The only reason I don't want this movie to be dead is I'm worried they'll eventually do it in the future and I just want it to be done with. But maybe it's really dead for good now because there's already going to be two movies that deal with the same subject, and without the silly kung fu karate Asian twist nonsense that is really ridiculous when you think about it. Snow White runs away...to learn from martial arts guys! It sounds like a fake movie trailer you'd see on some show.

I was speaking in terms of fairy tales on TV when mentioning Grimm. The show doesn't specifically follow any fairy tale in particular, but it is connected if only by name.

I agree with all your points though Duster, I'd rather it never be made at all. The whole Asian twist was obnoxious, a better idea would be to just to do a live-action Mulan film if they are THAT interested in doing a film set there. Wasn't there one in pre-production?

Yea there was. The search function is useless in looking it up again, though. : / Google may help you though.

Also, a Chinese warrior film loosely inspired by the original fairytale is not a remake of Disney's animated classic.


Yes this is another version of the tale of Snow White that will be told in a different way. Disney's Snow White film from 1937 is one movie version base on the tale of Snow White and this new movie will be another movie version based on the tale of Snow White and it will be told in a very different way.


agreed. people fuss over remakes in general, regardless of studio. I'm taking this one with some salt.
