Snow White’s sister Rose Red gets own live-action movie
Disney is developing a new live-action movie centering on Snow White’s little known sister Rose Red.
A spin to the classic fairytale, “Rose Red” follows the sibling’s quest to wake her sister from a death-like sleep, reported Ace Showbiz.
The project hailed from Evan Daugherty who scored the pick-up from Disney after he brought the executive an updated pitch on the story.
The original draft was written by Justin Merz as a “standalone feature” but Daugherty reportedly revised it and brought it closer to the 1937 animated feature “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”.
Rose Red is actually a character who appeared in Disney’s “Brothers Grimm” tales but the story had no connection to the more well known Snow White tale.
In this latest Disney live-action, Rose Red is the key player who will team up with the seven dwarfs. She “must undertake a dangerous quest with Grumpy and the other dwarves to find a way to break the curse and bring Snow White back to life.”
This would be Daughtery’s second project revolving around the Snow White tale.
He wrote Universal’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” which starred Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth. Disney is also no stranger to putting a spin on their classics, having released “Maleficent” and “Cinderella” among others.
