Disney puts major film on hold

Disney has recently halted its film “The Order of Seven,” the “Snow White” retelling that followed a band of international warriors tasked with protecting a young woman. The project is now on hold indefinitely. The film was to star Saoirse Ronan and be directed by Michael Gracy.

 

The main reason for the hold off on the film was due to the abysmal box office numbers for “John Carter.” It’s too bad too because out of all the Snow White retellings this one seemed the most interesting with the plot being:  “a young woman in 19th century Hong Kong who escapes her wicked stepmother and takes refuge with seven men belonging to an ancient order dedicated to fighting demons and dragons.”
