The latest in Disney’s canon of live-action remakes, Snow White, is in early pre-production in the UK.  

Rachel Zegler stars in the title role; she recently made her feature debut in Steven Spielberg’s much-anticipated West Side Story (pictured), released at the end of this year. Zegler also co-stars with Zachary Levi in Shazam! Fury of the Gods, currently in production in Atlanta, Georgia. 

Marc Webb directs Snow White from a screenplay by Erin Cressida Wilson; Marc Platt produces. The original, animated feature was released in 1937, an adaptation of the 1812 fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. 

The Mouse House is already in production in the UK on another live-action remake, Pinocchio, starring Tom Hanks and directed by Robert Zemeckis.

Disney has had worldwide success with live-action remakes, including the recent Cruella and The Little Mermaid; the latter recently wrapped production in the UK after a lengthy, stop-start shoot.
