And so, with an air of inevitability, Disney's eye turns towards its original classic, Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs. You can add the fairy tale adaptation to the list of movies the Mouse House is giving the live-action treatment.

The studio is to The Girl On The Train sceenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson about a new script and La La Land tunesmiths Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are in discussions to write some new songs for what will once again be a musical that channels some of the classics (we'd expect to hear Whistle While You Work), and producer Marc Platt is overseeing development.

This one is at an early stage and there is no director or casting attached yet. There's a chance Snow could be beaten to the screen by her lesser-known fairy tale sister, Rose Red, whose movie is already in the works at the studio.

Almost every one of its back catalogue of animated outings is being considered for a live-action remake. Next up for the company is Beauty And The Beast, which arrives on 17 March next year.
