Disney's Snow White Film THE ORDER OF THE SEVEN Gets Shut Down

There are times in Hollywood when similar themed movies come out is bunches. For example "Armageddon" and "Deep Impact". "Volcano" and "Dante's Peak". Now Snow White seems to be all the rage with "Mirror Mirror" coming out a short while ago and the new "Snow White and the Huntsman" hitting AMC Theatres everywhere June 1st.

But did you know that there was a third Snow White film in development? Actually it's been in development for years. Disney's "The Order of the Seven" (formerly titled "Snow and the Seven") was to been the Mouse House's remaining of the Snow White tale and had set Saoirse Ronan to star. The synopsis was actually quite a good one:

"The film’s premise revolved around a group of seven international warriors who protect a young woman in 19th century Hong Kong who escapes her wicked stepmother and takes refuge” with the warriors, who belong to an “ancient order dedicated to fighting demons and dragons."

Yeah… I want to see that. But oh wait… we're not going to because apparently Disney has effectively pulled the plug on the film and it is no longer in development.

The speculation is that Disney is tightening its proverbial belt following the box office performance of "John Carter" earlier this year which did much less business than expected and even had Disney claiming they were going to take a $200 million dollar loss on the film when all was said and done. The budget for "The Order of the Seven" was said to be getting larger and larger, and Disney decided to call it off, at least for now.

Personally I think "Snow White and the Huntsman" looks fantastic… but I think I would have been even more interested in this one had it come to fruition. What do you guys think? Glad we're not getting yet another Snow White movie… or disappointed that we won't get to see this one?

    Really like the look of it! The trailer has a menacing and dark tone to it, as LEE pointed out. Hopefully this won't be another Die Hard 5 case, awesome trailer but terrible film. Godzilla looks so much like it's 60 year old predecessor. I did like the 1999 Godzilla, just because the actors were awesome and it was cool to see another take on a legendary creature, but this film looks so much darker, almost forbidden. Can't wait till the middle of May!!
