Filming for Disney’s live-action “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” movie is set to begin soon. Shooting will reportedly begin in March of next year in the UK under the working title “Merry”.
Rachel Zegler has been cast to play Snow White in the adaptation. The actress will make her public acting debut as Maria in Steven Spielberg’s new retelling of West Side Story which releases in December. She will also star in D.C.’s Shazam! Fury of the Gods sequel.
Insiders say the live-action film will expand upon the story and music from the original Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs animated movie which was released in 1937. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman, Dear Evan Hansen) will write new songs for the movie.
Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man) will direct the movie. Marc Platt (Mary Poppins Returns, La La Land) is producing. Erin Cressida (The Girl on the Train‘) will pen the script.
