Lily Collins revealed to ComingSoon.net tonight at WonderCon that she will star in Tarsem Singh’s Untitled Snow White Project at Relativity Media.
“Yes, I just got cast tonight,” she told us.
Collins will star opposite Armie Hammer (The Social Network) who will play Prince Andrew Alcott and Oscar-winner Julia Roberts who will play the Queen. Pre-production has begun, and principal photography will start in May. The theatrical release date is set for June 29, 2012.
The film 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.
The film’s producers are Ryan Kavanaugh (The Fighter), Bernie Goldmann (300) and Brett Ratner (“Rush Hour” franchise). The script was written by Melissa Wallack (Meet Bill) and Jason Keller (Machine Gun Preacher).
Collins, the daughter of Grammy-winning artist Phil Collins and who starred in The Blind Side, can next be seen on the big screen in Priest and Abduction. She will head into production on Screen Gems’ The Mortal Instruments, in which she will play the lead role of Clary Fray, after wrapping “Snow White.”
