According to a new rumor, Disney is developing a new live-action Snow White spinoff film called Rose Red and they are looking to cast Captain Marvel star Brie Larson in the lead role. It seems like another role that she would be perfect for.
The story is a revisionist take that transposes Rose Red into the Snow White tale, making her a key player in the later moments of the classic story. When Snow White takes a bite from the iconic poison apple and falls into her Sleeping Death, her estranged sister, Rose Red, must undertake a dangerous quest with Grumpy and the other dwarfs to find a way to break the curse and bring Snow White back to life.
This is definitely an interesting and fresh cinematic approach to taking on the classic fairy tale. There’s no director attached to the project yet, but apparently, the studio is currently on the hunt for one.
The project was first announced a couple of years ago. Justin Merz originally wrote the screenplay, but Snow White and The Huntsman writer Evan Daughtery came on and reworked it into something closer to the Disney animated film. The most recent draft of the script comes from Kristin Gore (SNL).
I think Larson is a talented actress and I hope that this rumor that she could be cast in the role of Rose Red turns out to be true.
