Disney Developing Live-Action Movie on Snow White’s Sister

Continuing its trend of spinning animated classics into live-action movies, Disney is now developing a second installment of its first fully animated feature film, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”

Sources confirmed to Variety that the studio is developing “Rose Red,” which follows Snow White’s sister. Disney will use a pitch by Evan Daugherty to polish the original draft by Justin Merz. The latter’s script has been around for some time, but Disney recently picked it up after Daugherty came to execs with an updated pitch on the story.

Tripp Vinson is producing the pic via his Vinson Films banner.

Rose Red is a character that appeared in “Grimms’ Fairy Tales” in an adventure that had no relation to the more well-known “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves” fairy tale that inspired the classic Disney animated film.

Tara Farney is executive producing, while Merz and Adam Rodin are co-producers on the project.

This marks the second go around for Daugherty in the “Snow White” world, after penning the script to Universal’s “Snow White and the Huntsman.” He is repped by UTA and Jake Wagner at Benderspink.

Merz was a writer on the 2014 animated film “The Boxcar Children.” He is repped by Abrams Artists Agency and Festa Entertainment.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.
