Relativity Offers The Brothers Grimm: Snow White to Cell Director Tarsem Singh

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the unfairest of them all? It's a tough call, because Hollywood's fight over Snow White is getting ugly. A battle between Universal Pictures and the studio's linchpin financier, Ryan Kavanaugh's Relativity Media, is unfolding over their competing efforts to adapt the same fairy tale. What's more, Vulture hears exclusively that Relativity has offered the job of directing its version of Snow White, The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, to Tarsem Singh, the renowned commercials director (of crazy expensive spots like last year’s Britney/Pink/Beyoncé "We Will Rock You" Pepsi commercial) and the guy behind the equally visually wild Jennifer Lopez thriller The Cell. It's unclear whether they'll reach a deal, but talks are proceeding apace.

The story is too old to be commented.

Hmmm...I liked Cell, and I like this idea of doing the Brother's Grimm version of Snow White. This could be very interesting and probably will be filled with images I won't be able to get out of my head. I'd love to see what he could do with it. At the very least it would look stunning and have some fascinating set pieces.

Yea, it should be interesting indeed. If nothing else I like the darker take of Brother Grimm fairy tales. More mature. The tales behind fairy tales are usually decent to good stories. Just they've been "sissified" over the years by Disney. Not to say they weren't great movies coming out of Disney. Just to say that it should be interesting to see a take that is a little less meant for the kids.
