Natalie Portman To Bring Edge To Snow White

Natalie Portman is reportedly being lined up for an "adult" version of 'Snow White'.

The 'Closer' actress is said to be keen to take the titular role in the upcoming film 'Brothers Grimm: Snow White', which is an edgy new reimaging of the classic children's story.

Developed by Relativity Media and Brett Ratner, French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet is also being lined up as director for the revamp.

Brett recently revealed the movie is set to be completely different from the Disney original, with scriptwriter Melisa Wallack revisiting the original 500-year-old folk tale.

He said: "This is not your grandfather's Snow White. Melisa went back to the 500-year-old folk tale and put in some of the things that were missing from Walt Disney's film. His dwarves were miners, and here they are robbers.

"Walt made one of the great movies of all time, but ours is edgy and there is more comedy. The original, made for its time, was soft compared to what we're going to do."
