Another day, another Snow White casting story has been released. Over the past few weeks, we’ve been reporting heavily on Snow White and The Huntsman, but that’s not the only adaptation of the classic story that’s in development. There’s also The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, which is being produced by Relativity Media. According to Vulture, Oscar winner Julia Roberts is being courted to star in the film as the Evil Queen.
Roberts must be Relativity’s way of combating Charlize Theron in Snow White and The Huntsman. Since she’s set to play the Evil Queen in that film, you have to fight an Oscar winner, with another Oscar winner. According to the site, Roberts is finally engaging on Tarsem Singh’s upcoming 3-D adaptation of Snow White and is entering talks for the role. They’ve been after her for a while, and she’s finally throwing them a bone.
After something as tranquil and life changing as Eat Pray Love, we’re not surprised that Roberts would be interested in taking on something of this capacity. It’s a huge change of pace for the actress.The Evil Queen will be completely different than anything else she’s done, and it would be interesting to see her as the character. She should take it.
What do you think of Roberts playing the Evil Queen in The Brothers Grimm: Snow White?
