Disney Turns 'Snow White' into Martial Arts Epic

Jul 06, 2005 | 6:55am EDT

Bosses of movie giant Disney are so desperate to tap into the Chinese cinema Market--they are making a martial arts version of their 1937 animated hit Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Yeun Woo-Ping, the celebrated fight choreographer for Kill Bill, The Matrix and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon will direct the film, which will see Kung-Fu Shaolin monks replacing the seven dwarves from the original Brothers Grimm fairytale.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon has written the script for the film, which will be set in the 1880's in a British colony in China.
