Typically enough, I’m more than a little distracted by the election today, but this item about director Tarsem Singh signing on for “Snow White and the Huntsman” got my attention.

I’m sure like most of you, when I hear “Snow White” I think of this.

Now, I understand this is going to be a very different take on the material. Even so, under Singh’s distinctive hand, it could end up looking like this.


I really was distracted when I wrote this. “Snow White and the Huntsmen” is a different Snow White project entirely than this one, which Anne Thompson tells us has been described as the “slutty” “Snow White.” Sort of the like the pacifist Rambo. You gotta love how Hollywood decides to suddenly decides to have five different versions of the same long-dormant topic/property. I mean, for 73 years, we were all just fine with no new “Snow White” projects. Now, all of sudden, there’s at least three. Why?
