Relativity Media has released a first look at Lily Collins’ (The Blind Side) character as Snow in Snow White, directed by Tarsem Singh (The Cell) to Entertainment Weekly and you can check it out below.
Whilst talking to the magazine, Collins the differences between their representation of Snow to what has come before: “She’s very much that fairy tale princess we’ve all read about in books. She’s been modernized in a way that she becomes a fighter in the end.”
She continued by explaining how the dynamic between Snow and the Evil Queen (Julia Roberts) worked with regards to their fighting over the Prince (Armie Hammer); “They’re competing for the prince in separate ways. The Queen wants to use him to better herself. I’m seeking his help to gain back my kingdom from the Queen. She has her intentions from the start. I go from seeking his help to falling in love, though obviously there’s something of a spark from the beginning.”
With a cast of Danny Woodburn, Nathan Lane and Sean Bean also in the cast, Snow White is shooting now in Montreal and will arrive next year.
So what do you think of Lily Collins’ look so far? With a new representation of a fairy tale that has been done over and over again, I wonder what is going to be special about this new production. Especially with the competition of another film, Snow White and the Huntsman, which is also due out next year. After the flop that was Red Riding Hood, earlier this year, maybe it’s time the fable was put to rest?
