Magic Mirror on the wall, who will play the Evil Queen next fall?
Gadot, the “Wonder Woman” star whose “Red Notice” film debuts Friday, is in final negotiations for the Evil Queen role in “Snow White,” the website reported.
Deadline first reported Gadot’s casting.
“West Side Story” star Rachel Zegler is playing the title role, Entertainment Weekly reported.
“Snow White,” based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale classic, famously has the Evil Queen looking into her Magic Mirror and asking, “Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is fairest of them all?” The mirror faithfully responds daily that it is her -- until, one day, the fairest crown passes to her stepdaughter, Snow White.
The infuriated Evil Queen goes into a rage that will involve a huntsman, seven dwarf miners and a poisoned apple. Exiled into the forest, Snow White is eventually rescued, and the Evil Queen meets her comeuppance.
The Disney remake, like the original, will be brimming with music, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Award-winning composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who wrote “La La Land,” “The Greatest Showman” and “Dear Evan Hansen,” will write new songs for the film, the website reported.
Marc Platt will be the producer, while Marc Webb will direct, Entertainment Weekly reported. Filming is expected to begin early next year.
