Screenwriter Evan Daugherty, director Rupert Sanders, and producer Joe Roth have been shopping Snow White and the Huntsman around Hollywood. According to Heat Vision, this new take on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs has been making the rounds at all the studios except for Disney, which has its own Snow White re-imagining with Snow and the Seven. This new take gives the Huntsman an expanded role where he becomes chained to Snow White for part of the story and acts as a mentor figure, teaching the teen girl how to fight and survive. Huntsman becomes the third Snow White project floating around after Disney’s film and an “edgy” re-imagining of the character being produced by Brett Ratner.
Daugherty’s past work includes a pass at the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe script and the spec Shrapnel, the latter of which is being directed by John McTiernan. Sanders’ has built a successful portfoilo of commercials including work on the video games Halo and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. [Artwork above by J. Scott Campbell]
