LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Former “The Blind Side” actress Lily Collins has been cast as Snow White for Relativity Media’s upcoming reboot of the famed fairy tale, a rep for the studio confirmed to Access Hollywood on Saturday.
The 22-year-old beauty — daughter of British music icon Phil Collins – will reportedly tackle the role of “the fairest of them all” in the as-of-yet untitled feature, which is slated for release on June 29, 2012.
Lily’s charming Prince will be played by “The Social Network” hunk Armie Hammer – who played Harvard’s Winklevoss twins in the box office hit, while Academy Award winner Julia Roberts has been cast as the evil Queen.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, the story of Snow White will engage in a box office battle as Universal plans to release another version of the fairy tale, “Snow White and the Huntsman,” on December 21, 2012.
With British director Rupert Sanders at the helm, “Huntsman” will star “Twilight” beauty Kristen Stewart as Snow White and Charlize Theron as the evil Queen.
