Julia Roberts has been cast as the Evil Queen in an upcoming live-action version of the classic fairy tale!
The film’s title is “The Brothers Grimm: Snow White”, which is based from the original German novel where the 1937 animated version of Walt Disney came from.
The star of hit rom-com movies such as My Best Friend’s Wedding, Mystic Pizza, Notting Hill, Runaway Bride, Valentine’s Day and Pretty Woman will play an off-beat role in which she is not known for. And that alone is what makes the film interesting.
CEO Ryan Kavanaugh of Relativity Media, the film’s producer, officially confirmed the big news, “Julia was our first and only choice to play the Queen. She is an icon, and we know that she will make this role her own in a way that no one else could.”
“The Brothers Grimm: Snow White” is scheduled to be released on June 29, 2012.
