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

, can next be seen on the big screen in Priest
. 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."
