Armie Hammer may or may not get to play opposite Johnny Depp in Gore Verbinski’s one-trillion-dollar version of The Lone Ranger. But Hammer, one of the stars in David Fincher’s Academy Award-nominated The Social Network, can already add the role of Prince Charming to his resume. In this still nameless Snow White project, Hammer is joined by Lily Collins as Snow White and a bosomy Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen.
Directed by Tarsem Singh, from a screenplay by Jason Keller and Melisa Wallack, itself adapted from one of Jacob Grimm and Wilhelm Grimm’s tales (themselves adaptations of age-old European folk stories), the Roberts-Collins Snow White movie also features Nathan Lane, Sean Bean, Mare Winningham, and Michael Lerner.
Singh’s Snow White project comes out via Relativity Media on March 16, a few months ahead of Universal Pictures’ Snow White and the Huntsman, which stars Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman, Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen, and Sam Claflin as Prince Charming. Rupert Sanders is the director.
