Lily Collins - Lily Collins On For Snow White Role

Lily Collins is to star as Snow White in a movie version of the classic fairytale.

The daughter of British musician Phil Collins is best known for her role as Sandra Bullock's daughter in sporting drama 'The Blind Side', but is said to have impressed bosses at Relativity Media in her audition to play the innocent beauty.

She told People.com: "'Snow White' was my favourite fairytale growing up and when I first read about the project I was like, 'I have to get in on this.' It's such an iconic character."

Julia Roberts is signed on to play the wicked queen in the 3-D project - tentatively titled 'The Brothers Grimm: Snow White' - which will be directed by 'The Cell' filmmaker Tarsem Singh.

Armie Hammer will star as the prince.

Little known writers Melissa Wallack and Jason Keller have scripted the movie, which will be produced by Ryan Kavanagh, Bernie Goldman and Brett Ratner.

It is the second film based on the story in production - Kristen Stewart is also in line to play the titular role in 'Snow White and the Huntsman'.
