For the moment, David Dobkin's "Arthur & Lancelot" is mostly known as being the fantasy pic that killed both Bryan Singer and Guy Ritchie's competing "Excalibur" remakes at Warner Bros. With a project that was further along, WB threw their weight behind "Wedding Crashers" director David Dobkin's pic and with shooting scheduled to begin next year, they are beginning to start casting it up and as usual, a plethora of names have come out of the woodwork.

We're Really Excited About This! *Wooden Puppet Nose Grows To Twice Usual Length*The transformation of Shawn Levy is nearly complete. Having been a much-derided director of nakedly commercial comedies like "Night at the Museum," "Cheaper By The Dozen" and "The Pink Panther," the helmer took a left-turn into effects-driven family territory, with "Real Steel," which turned out to be far better received than you'd expect a movie about robot boxing to be, and is currently doing well (although not amazingly so) at the box office.

Meet Jason Keller, the last honest man in Hollywood. The writer recently attended the premiere of "Machine Gun Preacher" and the party hearty Vulture were there in attendance and couldn't help but ask Keller about the still untitled Snow White movie he penned for Relativity. You know, the one that has been competing bitterly with Universal's "Snow White And The Huntsman" over release dates, with Relativity so desperate to come out on top first that Tarsem is already filming for a release date of March 16, 2012. That's right, he's got less than a year to crank this sucker out. And according to Keller, when he was first hired in December last year, Relativity were so hungry to get things rolling that they started getting production departments open before he had even finished the script.

Levy Considering A Frankenstein Flick & 'Maleficent' In case "At The Mountains Of Madness," "The Dark Tower" and "The Lone Ranger" haven't tipped you off, these days studios are more wary than ever about the coin they spend. It's an irony considering that only tent-pole fare seems to get greenlit these days, but even then, expensive, costly gambles like "Cowboys & Aliens" are projects no movie executive can afford to make. Which brings us to "Fantastic Voyage." Produced by James Cameron, and set to be in 3D, the hot project found a number of directors circling or involved at various points including Paul Greengrass, Tarsem, Darren Aronofsky, Jonathan Mostow, Timur Bekmambetov and Louis Leterrier, before Shawn Levy signed on in February. But it seems the director and Fox are at odds over how to proceed with the production.

Snow White, Hansel & Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood and now, Arthur and Lancelot. Fables and fairy-tales continue to get Hollywood studio types excited and when Warner Bros. dropped $2 million last month for David Dobkin's "Arthur & Lancelot" they weren't messing around. As is usual, without a cast or firm start date nailed down, the film already has a release date so Dobkin will have to get his motor running.

First, with Tarsem Singh's Snow White movie scheduled to come out next spring, can we get a title already? Having to write "The Untitled Snow White Movie" or "The Project Formerly Known As 'The Brothers Grimm: Snow White'" is getting a bit irritating. Second, where can we get that dress?

The list of Guillermo Del Toro produced films long ago surpassed the levels of being absurd and comically long but what the hell, he's just added another one but unlike the myriad of other projects in various stages of development this one has a pretty big name already attached.

"Snow White and the Huntsmen" seems to have all the buzz, adding multiple actors as the dwarves in separate announcements over the past few days. By increasing the film's pre-production profile, the picture vaulted over the surprisingly buzzless untitled "Snow White" film currently shooting under director Tarsem Singh, and slated for a release almost three months earlier. While the film boasts Julia Roberts as the wicked queen menacing Lily Collins as our heroine, Armie Hammer as the dashing Prince Alcott and Nathan Lane as the oh god stop right there you're sold on Lane. Fortunately, it does appear that the Singh project will have that extra shot of awesomeness that 'Huntsman' cannot boast.
