Anyone out there thinking about taking the premise in a WHOLE new direction? What are folks opinions on how far afield would you go?
personally, no. "the 12 dancing princesses" is one of my favorite fairytales, so I want to keep it a fairytale movie. I had a BRIEF idea of modernizing it... but I think it works better as a fairytale.
I had thought about making it a dark "horror" tale (like they did with Little Red Riding Hood"). But in the end, keeping it in the fairytale genre is more appealing.
