Julia Roberts to play Evil Queen in 'Snow White'
Image Credit: Landmark/PR PhotosThe Brothers Grimm: Snow White has found its Evil Queen. EW has confirmed that, as rumored, Julia Roberts will be playing the villainous role for the Brett Ratner-produced film for Relativity, which starts production in April. This project, of course, is not to be confused with Snow White and the Huntsman; that Universal film, which may feature Kristen Stewart in the role of Snow White, will likely star Charlize Theron as its Evil Queen. (Viggo Mortensen is in talks for the Huntsman role.)
UPDATE: Relativity Media officially confirmed Roberts will play the Evil Queen. “Julia was our first and only choice to play the Queen,” said producer and Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh in a statement. “She is an icon, and we know that she will make this role her own in a way that no one else could.”
