The most active of the many Snow White projects as of late is Universal Pictures’ Snow White and the Huntsman, but let’s not forget the other high–profile Snow White projects being developed: Disney’s Snow and the Seven is still on the way, and Relativity Media also has one on the way that’s putting together its own decent cast.
The movie was once called The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, but is now said to be “untitled,” so it’s unclear whether that title is still in play. This version of the fable stars The Blind Side and Abduction actress Lily Collins as Snow, with Julia Roberts playing her evil stepmother and Queen, and The Social Network and new Lone Ranger Armie Hammer playing her prince charming–type love interest.
Now the man you have to cast if you have the chance to cast him, Sean Bean, has been added to the party. Bean is in final negotiations to play the role of the King and father to Snow White.
The movie will be directed by Tarsem Singh, whose past credits include The Cell, The Fall, and the upcoming Greek mythology epic, Immortals.
It was once set to be released on June 29th of 2012 (to beat Snow White and the Huntsman‘s December 21st date), but has now been moved up to March 16, 2012 (once again to beat Huntsman, which has since moved into the June 1st slot).
