Lily Collins set to star as Snow White alongside Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen

04.04.2011

In the battle of the Snow White movies, Relativity's SNOW WHITE seems to be getting the upper-hand as they've found an actress to play their title character while last week the competing project, Universal's SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, lost a star in Viggo Mortensen. Relativity has signed Lily Collins (THE BLIND SIDE) to star as Snow White alongside Julia Roberts as The Evil Queen and Armie Hammer as Prince Andrew.

While you may recognize Collins from that Sandra Bullock movie, she's perhaps best known as being the daughter of easy listening staple Phil Collins. The young actress was actually studying journalism at USC (she had previously written columns for Seventeen, Teen Vogue and the LA Times) before realizing what a silly job choice that was and made her acting debut in two 2009 episodes of "90210."

Whether Collins helps Relativity's SNOW WHITE beat the rival project to the punch remains to be seen. The studio and director Tarsem Singh are aiming for a May start and a June 29, 2012 release date (a good six months ahead of the December, 2012 release for the Kristen Stewart/Charlize Theron project at Universal).

Do you think we'll actually get two SNOW WHITE films in 2012 or will one of them eventually bow out? Which would you rather see?

I'm not big fond o Julia Roberts either but I'm not going to hate on her because like many, she has done both good and bad career choices over the years.
But if I were to choose between two I would pick Tarsem's version just out of curiosity. Maybe I will watch both.

Better then Kristin Stewart. Don't get me wrong I am not on the I hate Stewart bandwagon, but I just don't think she is pretty enough for Snow White.

The company I work for here in the UK provides alot of supplies to film studios, mainly for the costume/wardrobe dept. We've just started doing orders for this movie, under the name of 'Dark Mirror Productions'.
It looks interesting. I'll have to see if I can get some info on the costumes and sfx the next time I talk with them

I am much more excited for this version than the "Huntsman" one. Tarsem is a visionary wunderkind.

I would rather see the Kristen Stewart/Charlize Theron version despite the face that Tarsem is directing the other. I love Stewart and Theron while I have always utterly despise Julia Roberts. Roberts is decider in this argument.
