Anyone interested in the latest retellings of Snow White?  What do we think of "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Mirror Mirror" being released in the same year?  I know "running out of ideas" crosses everyone's mind, but what of this sudden interest in Snow White?

"Snow White" isn't the only fairytale being retold in the media. There's TV shows like Grimm (pretty sure it has to do with the Brother's tales, anyway - never actually watched it) and Once Upon a Time, and then other fairytale movies coming out...it's just a phase, like vampires, dystopias, and mermaids. Not that I don't like this particular phase. :)

Theres an interesting article in io9: http://io9.com/5898395/why-is-everybody-obsessed-with-snow-white-right-now?tag=s...
and following on from what Susie says, theres also a Hansel and Gretel film and a Jack the giant killer film coming out in the next couple of years.
I don't mind this new spate of re-telling, fairytales are some of the best source material out there, I'm sure everyone in this group would agree :)

#2:  Yeah, she did take a bit of a lengthy hiatus.  I think it was for her health, but she's updating regularly, now.

#3 & 4:  My question was about Snow White. :(

I figured it was still relevant because all these films are part of the same movement. Also I didn't want to reiterate what was written in the article that I linked, which is only about Snow White and has some interesting possible answers to your question.

I really liked Mirror Mirror by Gregory Maguire. I loved that the mirror belonged to the dwarves. And the link to the Borgias!
