Disney To Develop Live Action Movie About Snow White’s Sister

Surprisingly it’s been a while since the last report of a Disney animated classic being remade into a live action film.  There was a stretch where it seemed like every other week there was a new film in the works including (but likely not limited to)  Beauty and the Beast , Dumbo, Genie (from Aladdin),Prince Charming, Winnie the Pooh, Sword in the Stone,  Mulan,Pinocchio, Night on Bald Mountain and Cruella (101 Dalmatians).  That list is in addition to the previously released Alice in Wonderland (and this year’s sequel), Maleficent, Cinderella and Jungle Book coming out next month.  A new title has joined the list based on the classic tale of Snow White.  Read on below for more details.

Did Ben Affleck Write a Batman Movie Script?

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opened last weekend, and despite receiving mixed reviews from critics and fans the film itself made a ton of money at the box office.  Warner Bros. must be breathing a huge sigh of relief since the future of their superhero properties (and they have quite the extensive film slate set up following Batman v Superman) hinged on the reception of this movie.  No matter what was said about the positively or negatively, one aspect that was universally praised was Ben Affleck’s version of Bruce Wayne/Batman.  What does the future hold for Affleck in the role and what will be the extent of his involvement behind the scenes in future movies involving the Caped Crusader?  Read on to find out.
