    Ann Peacock to Write CINDERELLA

    Disney made headway on a new live-action Cinderella last month with the hire of director Mark Romanek. But as we’ve seen with the dueling Snow White movies, the appeal of fairy tales—known properties in the public domain—is too great for just one studio. Universal is throwing their hat into the ring, and according to Variety, the studio is turning to Ann Peacock for help. Peacock is in final negotiations to rewrite an “untitled reimagining of the fairy tale” from an earlier draft by Michael Dougherty. Specific plot details are under wraps, but barring any drastic changes, the premise should look familiar when Universal is ready to go public with the synopsis: a young girl is whisked away from her terrible home situation by her fairy godmother to a magical ball where she meets the aptly named Prince Charming.

    Peacock’s credits are diverse, from Kit Kittredge: An American Girl to The Killing Room to an Emmy for the TV movie A Lesson Before Dying. The best comparison here is screenplay credit on the family friendly fantasy The Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. She’s a solid choice—a wise move since this will be Bruno Aveillan’s first time in the director’s chair
    See I told you...public domain!!!! And why hasn't Michael Trick'r'Treat Dougherty been given something else to do??????

    Actually it sounds like really botched circumcision with a sprinkling of gonorrhea and gential warts.

    You like Rumplestiltskin???

    That King treats that poor girl like a piece of **** and only marries her for her "gold making abilities" (which, even as a little girl I didn't like). It's a sick tale of medieval sweat shopery!! He might as well been holding her green card and then sell her into sexual slavery to ever knight and lord that came by. AND THEN! What do you supposed Rumplestiltskin was gonna do with that kid he was gonna take??? That guy's a pedo...all the way.

    Ok...enough. All fairy tales are populated by outdated standards as far as treatment of women and filled with arch characters who do dreadful things to the good and pure hearted. If you are going to apply current mores to fables that were written ages ago I have to call bull****. Cautionary tales kid...you AREN'T supposed to be cool with the wicked on display. That's the whole point. I know you know better than that.

    Here we go again.

    What JD said.

    Yeah, most of those fairy tales are perverted and sexist, but that's what makes them appealing to kids, lol. When one is young, parents try so hard to keep the taboo away from kids, but are more than willing to tell their kids fairy tales about kids being eaten alive or burned to death, lol. And a lot of those old Disney animated movies tapped into that darkness, and now, well, it's gotten so PC that heaven forbid making scary films or stories aimed for children. Meh!

    If I ever have kids, lol, I am going to read them every creepy fairy tale that I can get my flippers on. That will scare them straight!
