According to a new report from Deadline, the Wonder Woman actress will be joining the film to play the infamous Evil Queen, opposite of the previously-cast Rachel Zegler’s Snow White. Other details revolving around the project remain scarce at this point, but the live-action adaptation is said to expand on the original Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs from 1938, fleshing out both its story and its music. Marc Webb will be helming the crew as director with Marc Platt producing, while Benj Pasek and Justin Paul — most known for their work on La La Land, The Greatest Showman and Dear Evan Hansen — will be joining to write new songs and original music.
Gadot herself will star in the soon-to-be-released Red Notice on Netflix and is currently working on Heart of Stone for the streaming platform as well as Cleopatra for Paramount. No release window has been given for the live-action adaptation of Snow White yet, so Disney fans should stay tuned for more updates to come.
Elsewhere in entertainment, Ryan Reynolds says he’s taking a break from filming movies to spend more time with family.
