The Brothers Grimm: Snow White (2012)

Anyone else a fan of The Fall directed by Tarsem Singh? Have to say that I'm curious about this proposed adaptation of The Brothers Grimm: Snow White.
Julia Roberts is said to have signed on as the Evil Queen.
To be produced by Relativity Media with script by Melisa Wallack.

Relativity's CEO Ryan Kavanaugh said of Julia Roberts' hiring , "Julia was our first and only choice to play the Queen. She is an icon, and we know that she will make this role her own in a way that no one else could.”
He also praised director Tarsem Singh in an earlier press release, "His aesthetic ability is so insane that when we were deciding on Snow White we were like, 'Who can actually create Snow White as an image - which is one of the most iconic images that we grew up with - in a way that actually is better than what we all remember, which is so good?' And it was him."

  1. Julia Roberts is now confirmed to star as the evil queen in this film with Relativity Media issuing a press release:

    Pre-production has begun, and principal photography will start in April. The theatrical release date is set for June 29, 2012.

    Relativity’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh commented, "Julia was our first and only choice to play the Queen. She is an icon, and we know that she will make this role her own in a way that no one else could.”

    Looks like this film will get started and be released first! Interesting!

  2. Oh, and I forgot to include this from the press release:

    Relativity Media has closed a deal with Oscar®-winner Julia Roberts to play the Queen in its upcoming untitled Snow White feature, based on the Brothers Grimm story, directed by Tarsem Singh (Immortals, The Cell).

    So, both director Tarsem Singh and Julia Roberts are locked in this film. This will be interesting to see. I wonder who will play Snow White. I hope they picked an unknown actress to play her.

  3. Yes I read about that but still seems that the race is not over. While both films are charging out of the gate, some movie critics are suggesting that one of them might still fold. I'm still surprised at just how often movies on the same topic emerge at the same time!

  4. Trying to keep track of the changes here. Seems fairytales are alive and well...

  5. The Fall was spectacular we look forward to more from Tarsem Singh he is an astonishing director. His work is visually arresting and memorable.
