Mirror Mirror Stars Julia Roberts Lily Collins, Relativity Media has announced that the long-awaited title for its upcoming reimagining of the classic Snow White fairy tale is “Mirror Mirror.” Filming for the comedy/action/adventure wrapped in mid-September under the direction of visual stylist Tarsem Singh (“Immortals,” “The Fall,” “The Cell”). The theatrical release date is set for March 16.
“Mirror Mirror” stars breakout star Lily Collins (“The Blind Side”) as an exiled princess who enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright and Oscar winner Julia Roberts (“Erin Brokovich”) as an evil Queen who steals control of a kingdom, in a magical adventure/comedy filled with jealousy, romance, and betrayal designed to capture the imagination of audiences the world over, according to a news release. The film also stars Armie Hammer (“The Social Network”) as the object of their affection, Prince Andrew Alcott, and Nathan Lane (“The Birdcage”) as the hapless and bungling servant to the Queen.
Rounding out the cast are Sean Bean (HBOâ€™s “Game of Thrones,” “Lord of the Rings: The Return of The King”), Mare Winningham (“Brothers”) as Baker Margaret, Michael Lerner (“Elf”) as Baron and Mark Povinelli (“Water for Elephants”), Jordan Prentice (“Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle”), Danny Woodburn (“Watchmen”), Sebastian Saraceno (“Bedtime Stories”), Ronald Lee Clark (“Epic Movie”), Martin Klebba (“Pirates of The Caribbean”) and Joey Gnoffo (“The Benchwarmers”) as the Seven Dwarfs.
On June 1, Universal Pictures is set to release its action movie “Snow White and the Huntsman,” starring Kristen Stewart (“The Twilight Saga”) and Chris Hemsworth (“Thor”) in the title roles. In Universal’s version, Oscar winner Charlize Theron (“Monster”) plays the Evil Queen.
Although both movies make use of the fairy tale made famous by the Brothers Grimm, the studios are saying they’re different enough and spaced far enough apart to both succeed, reports the Associated Press.
Stewart talked a bit about playing Snow White earlier this week in Los Angeles at “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1? press day, which I attended. Look for my feature on Stewart closer to the “Twilight” film’s Nov. 18 release date here at BAM’s Blog, on NewsOK and in The Oklahoman.
I also got the chance to attend Friday the press day for “J. Edgar,” which stars Hammer, Leonardo DiCaprio and Naomi Watts. Since Clint Eastwood’s biopic of FBI founding director J. Edgar Hoover opens Nov. 11, looking for my coverage coming next week.
