And here we are again!
Upcoming films based on the tale of Snow White are all moving their pieces into place in an attempt to keep up with their competitors. We’ve heard about Universal Pictures’ Snow White and the Huntsman lining up stars such as Charlize Theron, Viggo Mortensen, and Kristen Stewart for potential roles. Then came word that Disney, who’s coming back with another take on the story they used for the 1937 animated classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs titled Snow and the Seven, had hired the writer of Toy Story 3 to pen their script.
Being sure to keep pace with the others, Relativity Media’s adaptation of the tale, titled The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, has acquired the services of a big name talent. In a press release sent out by the studio, they’ve announced that Julia Roberts has joined their film, and she will be playing their Evil Queen character.
Relativity has also set a release date for the movie, marking June 29, 2012 on the calendar. This is six months earlier than the December 21, 2012 release date that’s been set for Universal’s film, which currently has Theron in line for the same Queen role.
