The Brother's Grimm fairytale is hitting the big screen in another 'real life' adaptation of a classic fairytale. I'm loving the new trend of remaking the Disney friendly tales into their much grittier, darker and more artistic beginnings.
Director Tarsem Singh's project is expected to hit theaters in March 2012 with big names like Julia Roberts, Nathan Lane and newcomer Lily Collins leading the cast.
Here's the little synopsis blurb:
An evil queen steals control of a kingdom and an exiled princess enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright in a spirited adventure comedy filled with jealousy, romance and betrayal that will capture the imagination of audiences the world over.
The dwarfs all have really cute names too: Chuckles, Grub, Butcher, Half-Pint...
The fairytale looks promising and I hope that as the pictures seem to show, that the cinematic quality will be eye catching and unique. I love it when the costumes, hairdos, and setting are all done up and reinvented for the latest audience. It's always fun to see another person's interpretation of a classic! And in this version it looks like Lil' Ole Snow White gets to kick it into high gear and kick some butt - yay :)
