Lily Collins is Snow White in Tarsem Singh's movie

She'll star opposite Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer

Lily Collins has been cast as Snow White in Tarsem Singh's adaptation of the in-demand fairytale.

Collins (daughter of crooner Phil) is best known for her role as Sandra Bullock's daughter in The Blind Side, but she also has Priest and Abduction (with Taylor Lautner) in the can.

She won the role after a superb audition according to Heat Vision, and she'll be joining already-cast Julia Roberts (The Evil Queen) and Armie Hammer (Prince Andrew- bound to elicit a few sniggers from UK audiences…) on the project.

Saoirse Ronan was linked to the lead role a while back, and despite the fact the film has been going by the moniker The Brothers Grimm: Snow White for some time, Heat Vision claims it doesn't have an official title yet.

Still, it's looking like it'll be the first of many rival Snow White movies out of the gate, considering all the setbacks that have recently hit the Viggo-less Snow White and the Huntsman

Singh's version is set to land in summer 2012.

      A great stylist with incredible imagination, the stunning visuals of his previous efforts "The Cell" and "The Fall" could not hide the emptiness within although on balance they both won me over....will he follow suit title-wise on this one and simply title it "The Snow"?
