Gal Gadot is in final negotiations to portray the Evil Queen in Disney's upcoming live-action adaptation of "Snow White", directed by Marc Webb.
Gadot will star opposite "West Side Story" breakout Rachel Zegler, who was cast as the classic princess in June.
Marc Webb, who is best known for helming the "The Amazing Spider-Man" films starring Andrew Garfield and "500 Days of Summer", is set to direct the untitled adaptation. Marc Platt is serving as a producer alongside songwriting duo Benj Pasek and and Justin Paul, who are writing new music for the film. Production is expected to begin in 2022.
The original Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs cartoon, based on the Brothers Grimm fairytale, was released in 1938. It was Disney's inaugural animated feature and became a massive success for the studio. Insiders say the live-action film will expand upon the story and music from the original. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the Oscar- and Tony-winning duo behind La La Land, The Greatest Showman and Dear Evan Hansen, will write new songs for the movie.
Gadot has stayed on top of it over the past year with Wonder Woman: 1984 bowing last Christmas. Red Notice, which also stars Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds, bows on Netflix on November 12. She is also developing Cleopatra at Paramount, which she is producing. She can also be seen in Death on the Nile and is shooting Netflix’s Heart of Stone.
