The film, which sparked a petition from fans demanding Dreamworks stop whitewashing Asian characters, also stars Pilou Asbæk (Game of Thrones‘ Euron Greyjoy).

Variety writes,

“Snow White and the Huntsman” helmer Rupert Sanders will direct the movie. Avi Arad and Steven Paul are producing, while Michael Costigan, Jeffrey Silver, Tetsu Fujimura and Mitsuhisa Ishikawa are exec producing.

The script will be written by Straight Outta Compton‘s Jonathan Herman.

Bah, humbug.
