After the live action version of Disney classic Alice in Wonderland, the big studios have geared the pre-production of several other adaptations: Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, The Hunchback of Notre Damme, Pinocchio, The Sleeping Beauty, more than one version of The Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and even the evil-side of Cinderella, Malificent (abandoned by Tim Burton a few months ago).
Beyond those, seems like Guillermo Del Toro and Denise de Novi are writing the The Beauty and the Beast, a cheery news because both of them have showed they know how to handle the merge of a world of fairy-tale fantasy with the deep human pain and sorrow - Del Toro wrote and directed The Pan's Labyrinth and Novi produced Edward Scissorhands (itself a modern version of the classic). And now Harry Potter star Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) may be joining the cast as the Beauty. We will be waiting for further developments.
Still about the summer transfers news, Kevin Costner is in talks for Tarantino's Django Unchained, to play Ace Woody, a bastard that trains the slaves in order to prepare them for fights that amuse Calvie Candie (Leo Di Caprio).
