The Pretty Woman as The Evil Queen? Impossible!
Indeed, to many movie goers, the idea of Julia Roberts opposing Snow White in a re-imagining of this classic fairy tale is a difficult-to-fathom notion. But Relativity Media has released the first photo of the actress as this mean matriarch, staring down Lily Collins' character in the photo below:
"She’s the cat that ate the canary,” director Tarsem Singh (The Cell, Immortals) tells Entertainment Weekly of Roberts' Queen. “From serial killers to anyone who does evil deeds, they basically have a devil-made-me-do-it excuse, or they hear voices. I decided for the evil queen, this is going to be a person who sees her [good] self - but there’s a mirror personality.”
This still-untitled retelling of Snow White will be released in March, a few months before Kristen Stewart and company deliver their own version via Snow White and the Huntsman.
