Of the two competing Snow White films coming out over the course of the next year or so, only one of them had a title…until now. The one garnering the most attention has been the Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga) vehicle Snow White and the Huntsman, while the other has remained the Untitled Snow White Project on IMDB for the longest time. Now THR reports that the film will be called Mirror Mirror.
The title reflects the more lighthearted and comedic elements of the film, as opposed to the much dark Snow White and the Huntsman. That said, the presence of Stewart might mean that “darker” just means “broodier” or simply “Emo”.
Directed by Tarsem Singh, the visually arresting director of The Fall, The Cell and Immortals, Mirror Mirror will undoubtedly be pretty. It stars Lily Collins (Abduction) as Snow White, alongside Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen (so playing herself then?), Armie Hammer as the prince (two princes?), Sean Bean as the King (will he have an awesome death in this movie too?), and Nathan Lane (Hakuna Matata!).
Mirror Mirror is released in the US on 16 March 2012. It will be released in Australia on 29 March 2012 by Roadshow.
