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.

Elaine Khosrova does this, not infrequently. She warms a variety of types to room temperature, gets a glass of water to clear her palate between rounds and pries delicately at her subjects with...

Attention, America: Dorie Greenspan's bringing back the quiche

Being a part-time Parisian allows me a full-time love affair with quiche. The savory tart is everywhere. My favorite cafes have a quiche on the menu; the flavor changes daily, but it's always served with the same little green salad (and a not very good dressing, which must come from cafe-central; it's inescapable). Gérard Mulot, the patissier...
