Relativity’s Snow White Begins Shooting Next Week

That’s Relativity’s still untitled Snow White movie, to be more precise. You’d think that with the film officially moving into the production stage next week on Monday June 20, 2011, they would have settled on a title already, but apparently that isn’t too big of a concern to the studio.

Anyways, Relativity has announced the expected official start of production on the Tarsem Singh-directed “re-imagining” of the famous fairy tale, which is set to star Lily Collins as the titular heroine, with Julia Roberts as the evil stepmother determined to do her in (can you imagine that big ol mouth of Roberts letting out a loud, evil laugh? sheesh, it might give me nightmares), and Armie Hammer as the Prince.

In Relativity’s Untitled Snow White starring Oscar®-winner Julia Roberts and breakout star Lily Collins (The Blind Side), an evil Queen (Roberts) steals control of a kingdom, and an exiled princess (Collins) enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright in a spirited adventure comedy filled with jealousy, romance, and betrayal that will capture the imagination of audiences the world over. The film also stars Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as the object of their affection, Prince Andrew Alcott, and Nathan Lane (The Birdcage) as the hapless and bungling servant to the Queen.

Rounding out the film’s cast are Mare Winningham as Baker Margaret, Michael Lerner as Baron. The film’s Seven Dwarfs will be played by Mark Povinelli, Jordan Prentice, Danny Woodburn, Sebastian Saraceno, Ronald Lee Clark, Martin Klebba and Joey Gnoffo.

Singh is directing from a script by Melisa Wallack and Jason Keller, with Snow White scheduled to prance her way into theaters sometime in 2012.
