Julia Roberts is preparing to play one of the most famous queens in fairy tale history in the new movie Snow White — the Evil Queen. Confused at how Hollywood’s nicest actress could tackle such a poisonous apple? Suspend your disbelief, people. According to Relativity Media, there was never anyone else but Julia Roberts considered to play the Evil Queen of Snow White.
“Julia was our first and only choice to play the Queen,” Ryan Kavanaugh, the CEO of Relativity Media, assured. “She is an icon, and we know that she will make this role her own in a way that no one else could.”
Julia Roberts’ role in Tarsen Singha’s adaptation of the Brothers Grimm classic is a lock, but there’s still one important person missing from the fairy tale puzzle. Who will star opposite Roberts as the Evil Queen’s pure as snow stepdaughter, Snow White?
Snow White is on course to be released in June of 2012. The film is hitting theaters just before Charlize Theron’s own Evil Queen version of the fairy tale — Snow White and the Huntsman. Snow White and the Huntsman has not confirmed its Snow White either but the rumored belle of the ball is none other than Twilight’s Kristen Stewart. Think she’ll jump ship and join Roberts’ cast?
Will you be joining team Roberts or Theron as the Evil Queen who taints Snow White? Personally, we feel both will be very different from what the early reports are saying.
