For those keeping track, we’re up to a total of three re-imaginings of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.  The latest to advance — Relativity’s The Brothers Grimm: Snow White as produced by Brett Ratner — joins Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman and Disney’s Snow White and the Seven in the gold rush for dwarf-centric fairy tale cinema.

Vulture reports that Relativity has made an offer to the visually eccentric Tarsem Singh (The Fall) to direct the 3D Grimm from a script by Melisa Wallack (Meet Bill).  Universal and Relativity have maintained a mutually beneficial working relationship over the last several years, but these dueling Snow White projects could pose a threat, particularly if neither side relents.  Both studios are reportedly ringing up the talent agencies to check the availability of a limited pool of viable actresses: Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, and Anne Hathaway, to name a few.  Hit the jump for a rundown of the three projects.

Snow White and the Seven

  • housed at Disney
  • the dwarves are repurposed as “Shaolin fighting monks”
  • appears to be the furthest along the pipeline

Snow White and the Huntsman

  • housed at Universal
  • Joe Roth will produce;  Rupert Sanders is attached to direct
  • Evan Daugherty’s screenplay 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

The Brothers Grimm: Snow White

  • housed at Relativity Media
  • Brett Ratner will produce the Melisa Wallack script; Tarsem Singh has been offered the director’s chair
  • intended to be in 3D
