Lily Collins Will Bite the Apple as Snow White

By  · Published on April 2nd, 2011

One of the “Snow White” projects just got its title character even if it doesn’t have a title yet. Lily Collins ‐ who played Sandra Bullock’s character’s daughter in The Blind Side ‐ will star as the fairest one of all for Relativity Media’s version of the fairy tale being directed by Tarsem Singh.

The movie already has Julia Roberts signed on as the Evil Queen who creates the Sleeping Death, and Armie Hammer as the handsome prince who saves the day with a kiss. All of it seems like the formulation of a fairy tale, but Singh is gauranteed to make the thing look eye-bleedingly beautiful even if the story and acting sinks.

This might be sacrilege, but I guess I never realized there was much of a story to the story. Snow White is left in the forest, hangs out with a bunch of dwarfs, gets attacked for being too pretty, and then gets kissed, right? Is there really much going on to create a feature narrative here that doesn’t feature a ton of songs? I ask this honestly. [THR]
