Relativity may be first out of the gate in the dueling Snow White competition, but they could also be the first to crash and burn.
Relativity starts production on their "comedy action-adventure," Untitled Snow White (formerly The Brothers Grimm: Snow White), on June 20 (with director Tarsem Singh; release is March 16, 2012). Meanwhile, Universal is having screenwriter Hossein Amini tackle a rewrite on their Snow White and the Huntsman (with director Rupert Sanders; release is June 1, 2012). Amini wrote Cannes hit Drive, which is amped for its LA premiere June 17 at the Los Angeles Film Festival; he also did a rewrite on 47 Ronin, currently filming with Keanu Reeves and director Carl Rinsch. Getting the script in good shape could bring a greater advantage for Huntsman (cast photo below) than getting out of the gate first.
