And speaking of poorly-conceived reworkings of classic plots, Disney is apparently in talks to develop a new live-action version of Snow White. This fresh take on the fairytale would feature seven warriors (one of whom would apparently be played by Jet Li), rather than seven dwarves, and is rumored to star Natalie Portman.
I could get behind the warrior thing, but I just can't stomach Natalie Portman's vacant screen presence. I'd rather see almost any other actress in this role—even Megan Fox. Seriously: anyone else.
