First Look: Lily Collins as the Colorful Snow White in Tarsem's Movie
Wow this is a colorful photo, and a colorful dress, and a color background. But of course I wouldn't expect anything less from the visionary Tarsem Singh. Instead of showing up at Comic-Con this year, Tarsem is staying back to keep shooting his new film, The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, which is just a tentative title. Entertainment Weekly has unveiled a first look at 22-year-old Lily Collins as Snow White and, well, this kind of reminds me of Tim Burton's Alice of Wonderland. “It’s so epic. I was part of a costume ball today, so you can only imagine the outfits," Collins boasts to EW. Check out the full-size photo of her below.
In this version of Snow White, which will stay truer to the original Brothers Grimm fairy tale, Julia Roberts plays the Evil Queen, Sean Bean her husband, the King, and Armie Hammer as the prince. Collins goes on to explain: "She's a naive innocent young girl who turns into a woman and really finds herself," Collins says. In comparison to the dainty Snow White we all know, this won't be the same. "She's very much that fairy tale princess we’ve all read about in books. She's been modernized in a way that she becomes a fighter in the end." Read more on EW. Relativity will be bringing Tarsem's Snow White to theaters March 16th, 2012.
