Natalie Portman has reportedly been offered the lead role in Disney‘s new version of Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs.

Oscar-nominated Toy Story 3 screenwriter Michael Arndt has been hired to write the script for the new live-action film, entitled Snow And The Seven, based on the 1936 cartoon.

The new film tells the story of an English woman who travels to Hong Kong for her father’s funeral, reports There she discovers that her stepmother is scheming against her. Fleeing to China, the woman takes refuge with a band of seven international warriors.

Like the recently released Tangled, which was the company’s take on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale Rapunzel, the new film is expected to be a radical reworking of the original.
