According to a Deadline report, “The live-action film will expand upon the story and music from the original.” It further shared that the Oscar winning duo of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who’ve delivered hits like La La Land, The Greatest Showman and Dear Evan Hansen, will write new songs for the movie.
Regarding getting Gal Gadot onboard, the same report read, “While casting for Snow White was long and thorough, studio execs always had their eye on Gadot for the role that started it all when it comes to classic Disney villains. Gadot was also intrigued at the opportunity of joining stars like Angelina Jolie and Cate Blanchett, who previously played iconic villains from the Disney vault. After scheduling was worked out, a deal closed this week.”
Gal Gadot, who will soon be seen alongside Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds in Netflix release Red Notice, is expected to start shooting for Snow White in 2022.
