Wait, there's a third Snow White film in the works?

Yes, in addition to the versions starring Kristen Stewart and Lily Collins, Disney has been quietly prepping their own Snow White reboot, which will focus on the seven dwarfs. (Between these and 'The Hobbit,' we'll soon be up to our armpits in dwarves!)

The live-action movie, formerly known as 'Snow White and the Seven,' will now be called 'The Order of the Seven,' and the dwarfs are no longer lovable gem miners, but deadly warriors, who come to the aid of a woman who's being pursued by "an ancient evil."

Commercial director and visual effects expert Michael Gracey, whose credits include work on 'Happy Feet,' has just been tapped to direct.

Here's the synopsis, via The Hollywood Reporter:

The seven are a 19th century-set disparate band of international warriors belonging to a centuries-old order who have lost their way. Their meeting with an Englishwoman being chased by an ancient evil is the catalyst for their redemption. While the project is set in China, the warriors will be from locales near (the U.S.) and far (Russia), and each warrior will have a unique fighting style.

Filming is expected to begin next year, meaning this will definitely will be the last of the Snow White films to hit theaters.

Do you like this idea or are you tired of Snow White "re-imaginings" already?
