"If Charlize Theron can do it, so can I." That’s what Julia Roberts is probably saying to herself, having entered into talks to play the Evil Queen in The Brothers Grimm: Snow White.
With three Snow White films currently in production, this is going to get seriously confusing. In short: Roberts would play the Queen in Tarsem Singh’s Brothers Grimm movie, while Theron is playing the villainess in Snow White And The Huntsman.
A further third Snow film – Snow And The Seven – is currently being written by Toy Story 3 scribe Michael Arndt over at Disney.
Being directed in 3D by Singh, Brothers Grimm: Snow White has no cast yet attached. But the signing of Roberts would be a coup for the production, which has fallen behind competitor Huntsman in the casting department.
It would definitely be a shake-up to the routine for Roberts, who generally prefers rom-coms over the sort of stylised production that Grimm will no doubt turn into.
Now if they could just cast neice Emma Roberts as Snow White, that'd make it a proper family affair.
