Julia Roberts in talks for Brothers Grimm Snow White

"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.
