Published: June 14, 2011 - 12:14pm
Title treatments are on display for the two competing projects which are both slated for theatrical release in 2012.
In Relativity's Snow White, a spectacular reimagining of the classic fairy tale, an evil queen steals control of a kingdom, and an exiled princess enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright in a spirited adventure comedy filled with jealousy, romance, and betrayal that will capture the imagination of audiences the world over.
Oscar®-winner Julia Roberts plays the Queen, Lily Collins (The Blind Side) plays Snow White, Armie Hammer (The Social Network) plays Prince Andrew Alcott, and Nathan Lane (The Lion King, The Birdcage) plays the Queen's hapless and bungling servant, Brighton. The film's theatrical release date is set for March 16, 2012.
Snow White and the Huntsman will feature Stewart as the ax-wielding exiled princess with Charlize Theron as the antagonistic Evil Queen; Chris Hemsworth has also taken on the role of the Hunstman. Rupert Sanders will be directing the Joe Roth produced film which is scheduled for theatrical release on June 1st, 2012.
In Universal Pictures' upcoming film, Snow White, an 18-year-old princess who is only friends with animals, is getting more beautiful by the day as her step-mother, the Evil Queen Ravenna gets more and more jealous. When Ravenna tries to kill Snow White, she escapes with the help of a hunstman named Eric who is trying to get revenge on the Queen. Eric is very gruff but teaches Snow White how to fend for herself against the evil creatures of the forest. When she eats a poisonous apple, her childhood sweetheart Prince Charmant must kiss her in order to unfreeze her lips and give her the potion to heal her. She thinks she’s in love with Eric, but he assures her Prince Charmant is her one true love.
