Home Entertainment: The Girl On The Train DVD review

The Girl On The Train is an ambitious, supremely dark intensely female-driven thriller adapted from the popular 2012 novel by British author Paula Hawkins. The film version sees its action relocated from Hertfordshire to New York state and focuses largely upon Rachel Watson (Emily Blunt) a 32-year-old alcoholic who is also recovering from the severe break-down of her marriage to Tom (Justin Theroux). She commutes into New York City every day, sitting in the same seat, sipping from the same drink, staring at the rows of suburban houses at the side of the rail track. She fantasies about some of the inhabitants of said houses, including amorous couple Scott and Megan Hipwell (Luke Evans and Haley Bennett), who have tendencies to caress on their balcony, cavort in their garden and snuggle under a blanket around an open fire. Things take a change for the worse one day when Rachel suddenly witnesses

Disney Will Now Make a Live-Action 'Snow White'

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the latest addition to Disney's parade of animated movies heading to the big screen as live-action spectacles. Erin Cressida Wilson (The Girl on the Train) is in negotiations to write the screenplay, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Released in 1938, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was the first animated feature produced by Walt Disney and was a huge success, both critically and financially. Inspired by the fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, the film follows Snow White as she hides out from a jealous queen with a small group of Dwarfs in their forest home. The original featured eight songs, including "Whistle While You Work," "Heigh Ho" and "Someday My Prince Will Come." The new version will include new...

Disney Lines Up A Writer For A Live-Action Snow White Movie

Earlier this year, it was reported that Disney intended to expand upon the Snow White mythology, with a “live-action companion piece,” told from the perspective of the character’s sister, Rose Red – as depicted in the original Grimms’ fairy tales – to be written by Justin Merz and Evan Daugherty. Little more has been heard about that project, but that announcement has been somewhat overtaken by the news that an actual Snow White re-telling is now in the works, with Erin Cressida Wilson writing the script.

Disney has been mining the Snow White property for fresh material ever since delivering Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs in 1937. In addition to the high profile feature film projects, Mirror Mirror and Snow White And The Huntsman, Snow White has appeared in TV movies, TV shows, short films, theme parks, and a stage musical. This new feature film will be a live-action musical, with

Disney developing live-action Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

This won’t come as much of a surprise given that virtually every other animated property in its back catalogue is set for the live-action treatment, but THR is reporting that Disney is in development on a musical, live-action take on its very first animated feature Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

The live-action remake is being scripted by Erin Cressida Wilson (The Girl on the Train), and is said to expand upon the story and music from the 1937 original, with new songs from Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land).

We’ve had a couple of live-action Snow White tales recently in Mirror Mirror from Relativity and Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman, both of which were released in 2012. Meanwhile, Disney has also announced plans for a movie based around Snow White’s sister Rose Red.

Now Disney is making a live action Snow White too

Simon Brew Nov 1, 2016

Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs gets added to the list of live action takes on Disney animated hits...

In a surprise to pretty much nobody on planet Earth, it’s been revealed that Disney has added a live action take on Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs to its collection of remakes of its animated classics. The news follows the announcement of a live action The Lion King last month.

The only slight shock in this instance, really, is that it’s taken so long. Still, the studio’s original animated success is set to be put into the hands of screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson, who was the scribe who adapted The Girl On The Train for the big screen.

No director has been announced at this stage.

We do know who’s going to be song-writing duties, though. The pairing of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul

Disney Developing Another Snow White Film With Girl On The Train Screenwriter

Disney’s been on a bit of a streak with their animated-to-live-action films. Maleficent made bank at the box office, Cinderella killed it, and The Jungle Book pretty much elevated it to a whole new level. With next year’s Beauty and the Beast on the horizon, it seems like the House of Mouse can do no wrong (and don’t even get started on their Marvel, Pixar, and Disney Animation projects, which are all also Killing it).

Well, it looks like they’ve decided to add another film to their docket. Despite the fact that it’s only been about four years since the release of the ill-fated Mirror Mirror — an adaptation of the Snow White tale — Disney is now developing yet another version of this classic story. That’s right, they’re making another one.

Newswire: Disney is making a live-action Snow White, since we haven’t had one in a while

Back in 2012, two movies based on the classic Snow White fairy tale were released: Rupert SandersSnow White And The Huntsman and Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror. Surprisingly, though, neither of them were produced by Disney, which has spent the last few years mining its old animated hits for live-action gold—most recently by announcing that Guy Ritchie will direct an Aladdin movie. Seeing as how Disney missed out on that last wave of Snow White movies, it has now decided to correct that error by announcing a live-action Snow White movie of its very own.

As reported by Variety, this new version will “expand upon the story and music” from the original animated film, with screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson (The Girl On The Train) writing the script and La La Land’s Benj Pasek and Justin Paul writing new songs. Weirdly, it’s unclear if this movie ...
