Snow White Retelling

According to The Hollywood Reporter, there's going to be a re-telling, or re-boot, or... maybe a sequel? I don't know what to call it. But it's of Snow White. We all know the singing and dancing Disney Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs film. This new film is Snow White and the Huntsman, and by what I can find on wikipedia, has no little people at all. It's actually a much darker, much more action-packed Snow White where the evil queen banishes the princess, leading to her being taken under the wing of the Huntsman.

So far, it's rumored Universal has cast Viggo Mortensen as the Huntsman, Charlize Theron as the evil queen, and Kristen Stewart as Snow White herself. It feels like this film is going to need a big "it factor" other than the star of Twilight to make the movie work. For some reason when I think of this movie, my mind can only compare it to Johnny Depp's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Lots of flashy color and pizazz, maybe a big name, but the real deciding factor is going to be in the writing. A movie being graded on the story it tells? Go on! No, I mean it. That's what's going to matter.
