Looks like the girl who wore the same dress as Kristen Stewart will be playing the same role as Stewart - but in a different movie. Relativity Media has announced that Lily Collins is officially cast in the role of Snow White in their upcoming Snow White project being directed by Tarsem Singh. The project is tentatively titled The Brothers Grimm: Snow White and is obviously based on the classic Brothers Grimm story. Collins will star opposite Armie Hammer (his news) who will play Prince Andrew Alcott and Oscar-winner Julia Roberts, who will play the Queen. Pre-production has begun, and principal photography starts in May.
It looks like Tarsem is making some strong progress on developing this project while still working on post-production for Immortals, which isn't slated to hit theaters until November. This Snow White movie will hit theaters in June 29th, 2012. Relativity's Snow White, a retelling of one of the most beloved fables of all-time, will eschew the traditional story in favor of a more modern tale full of comedy and adventure. After her evil stepmother kills her father and destroys the kingdom, Snow White bands together with a gang of seven quarrelsome dwarfs to reclaim what is rightly hers. Lily Collins broke out in the movie The Blind Side and is also in this summer's Priest. Collins is 22 years old and looks to be on a fast track in Hollywood.

Over this Hollywood rebooting of Grim's classic bullshit. They won't, nor have the ever did a damn thing at the box office. Just dvd fodder for pre teens and a way to roll out new young talent, whom we'd be lucky to find one out of the bunch who can act worth a damn. Fairy tales are the new hip hop dance movies of Hollywood right now. Not worth a fucking dime.

After The Huntsman version this might need all the Tarsem Singh visuals it can muster.
