He’s about to be cast as Snow White’s father, the King, in Tarsem Singh‘s Snow White. That’s the Relativity, Julia Roberts, Lily Collins, Armie Hammer, family friendly one. Not the Universal, Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, action one. Read more after the jump. Read More »

Relativity is moving forward quickly with the film formerly called The Brothers Grimm: Snow White. The title has been ditched (it’s just Untitled Snow White Film for now) but Tarsem is still directing Lily Collins as Snow White, Armie Hammer as the Prince and Julia Roberts as the Queen. Nathan Lane will be “the Queen’s hapless and bungling servant, Brighton.” And Robert Emms will be the prince’s valet.
Now the seven dwarfs are all cast, as are a couple other small roles. That is after the break. Read More »

They cast the queen, they cast the prince and now they’ve cast their lead. Lily Collins, daughter of rock star Phil Collins, best-known for her role in The Blind Side, has been cast as the title character in Snow White, the Relativity Media re-imagining of the classic tale directed by Tarsem Singh (The Cell, Immortals). She’ll star alongside Oscar-winner Julia Roberts as the Queen and Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as Prince Andrew Alcott. It’s written by Melissa Wallack (Meet Bill) and Jason Keller (Machine Gun Preacher).
Originally titled The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, this film is now being referred to simply as Snow White and it looks like it’ll be the first of several competing projects to get out of the gate. Others include Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman starring Kristen Stewart and Disney’s Snow and the Seven written by Michael Arndt. Singh’s Snow White is currently in pre-production and will begin filming in May aimed at a June 29, 2012 release. After the jump, read the official plot description and more about Collins.
