Tarsem Singh appears to be going the more traditional route for his Untitled Snow White Project. This is your first look at Julia Roberts as the 'Evil Queen' and she looks just like a fairy tale; beautiful on the outside, beautiful enough to be believable when the mirror tells her she is in fact the fairest in the land until that inevitable day when she isn't, and with an malevolent twinkle in her eye.
While this does promise to be a dark twist on the classic fairy tale, in which Snow White and the seven dwarfs look to reclaim their destroyed kingdom, unlike Rupert Sanders' version starring Kristen Stewart, it seems that Lily Collins will not be wearing armor nor fighting battles. And the dwarves appear to be played by…wait for it…dwarves. (Although Little People is the correct term. The actors are Jordan Prentice, Joey Gnoffo, Sabastian Saraceno, Martin Klebba, Mark Provinelli, Ronald Lee Clark and Danny Woodburn). No word yet if any of them are grumpy, happy or sleepy.
This is Relativity's version of the battling Snow White films. (Remember last week, I told them the ball was in their court in terms of getting the publicity machine cranked up. I choose to believe these pics are a direct result of my challenge. We all have our delusions.) The film stars, in addition to Collins and Roberts, Armie Hammer as the Prince, Nathan Lane, Mare Winningham, Michael Lerner and Sean Bean as the King *swoon*. Tarsem Singh's Untitled Snow White Project (which is in post-production, they need to come up with a title, stat) will be released March 16 (which is before the June 1 release of that other movie).
