L'année 2012, sera une année "Blanche-Neige", puisque deux adaptation seront à l'affiche la même année. Celle des Frères Grimm avec Kristen, et l'autre plus proche de Disney avec Saorise Ronan.
Ooohh, we’re gonna have a little Snow White Smackdown coming up real soon as two competing Snow White movies gear up for production. The first, Snow White and the Huntsman, has Kristen Stewart signed on to play Snow White, though her Huntsman, Viggo Mortensen, has just dropped out of negotiations for reasons unknown, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This darker version of the Snow White tale – which finds Snow teaming up with the man hired to kill her – still has K-Stew lined up, and it shouldn’t be too hard to find a big-name replacement for Viggo. As of now, the film is due in theaters on December 21, 2012.
Ah, but six months before Snow White and the Huntsman is set to hit theaters we have The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, which comes from Relativity and just signed Saoirse Ronan (Hanna, The Lovely Bones) to play Snow White, with Armie Hammer (The Social Network) set to take on the role of Prince Andrew Alcott. This film also has Julia Roberts onboard to play the evil stepmother, as well as visionary director Tarsem Singh tackling this bad-boy from behind the lens.
Though K-Stew brings the bigger fanbase, it could be argued that Ronan is the much better actress, and her film seems a lot more “together” than Snow White and the Huntsman. The Brothers Grimm: Snow White is set to hit theaters on June 29th, 2012, and it will follow fairly closely to the original Brothers Grimm tale.
