Julia Roberts has been confirmed to star as the Evil Queen in Tarsem Singh's 3D BROTHERS GRIMM: SNOW WHITE.

This film is going head to head with Universal‘s SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, which has a scheduled release date of December 21, 2012. We may see BROTHERS GRIMM in theaters first, word is that production is moving at breakneck speed and could even begin filming next month. This would be a huge jump on the summer start on HUNTSMAN.

According to The Playlist, the film starts off with Snow White’s stepmother killing her father, forcing her to flee the kingdom, only to return with seven contentious dwarves to rightfully regain what is hers. Melisa Wallack (MEET BILL) wrote the script.

There has yet to be any further casting announcements made, but with Roberts signed on, the other cast will come soon. I am not a huge fan of Roberts, but this film may be something that I enjoy. This will mark the actress' first foray into 3D, which will be interesting.

    So there are 3 Snow White movies coming out, Disney’s SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN, Universal’s SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, and BROTHERS GRIMM: SNOW WHITE? Seems like Snow White overkill.

    Very well said, I think it will be a battle to see which film hits theaters first. Singh has a great style so it should be interesting.
