Lily Collins is Snow White in Tarsem’s THE BROTHERS GRIMM: SNOW WHITE

Despite rumors that young Saoirse Ronan was set to take up the role, THR reports that the lead in Tarsem's SNOW WHITE tale now belongs to Lily Collins. Collins may best be known as the actress that played Sandra Bullock's daughter in THE BLIND SIDE. For eighties pop culture wonks, she's also known as being Phil Collins' daughter. Her upcoming slate includes PRIEST and ABDUCTION, making Collins a hot property all the way around.

The actress is said to have "blown away" the team at Relativity with her audition. Though I have not seen much of Collins' work outside of THE BLIND SIDE, she seems like an interesting, fresh pick for the film.

If you're getting confused about the Snow White projects, this is the one from THE FALL director Tarsem that already has Julia Roberts lined up to play the evil Queen and Armie Hammer as the Prince. It will also be in 3D.

Tarsem's take on the tale will open on June 29, 2012, before Universal's own Snow White project hits screens.
