When I first heard that Disney was funding a kung fu based retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves it struck me as one of those rumors that was so strange it had to be true. Well, it is, and by the time it was originally announced it had already attracted big name Asian talent in the form of director Yuen Woo Ping - fight choreographer of the gods - and stars Chow Yun Fat and Kwan Sang Soo.

There's still no word on who will be playing the Snow White role - she will be white and most likely British - but the project now has a writer: Michael Chabon. Que? The man won a Pulitzer for his last novel - The Adventures of Kavalier and Klay - and huge critical raves for Wonderboys. Sure, he's done some writer-for-hire work, notably on Spider-Man 2, but what's a Pulitzer winner doing working on a project like this? I like it but it's leaving me awfully confused ...
