Disney's in talks for 'Snow White' live-action film


Another Disney classic is getting the live-action treatment.

After re-imagined box office hits like "The Jungle Book" and "Cinderella," Disney has apparently penned a deal to give its first full-length animated feature film the live-action treatment.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Erin Cressida Wilson, who wrote 'The Girl on the Train" film adaptation, is in talks to write the script for "Snow White."

The film is said to expand the story and have more music than the original.

Songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are tapped to write the new songs.

The original, animated, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" was released by Disney in 1937.

There have been other live-action adaptations in recent film history, including, "Mirror Mirror" in 2012 and "Snow White and the Huntsman."

Snow White has also been given new life on the small screen on ABC's "Once Upon a Time."

Disney is also in development for live-action versions of "Mulan," "The Lion King" and "Aladdin." 

A live-action version of "Beauty and the Beast" will hit theaters next year.
