  • The up and coming actress - and girlfriend of Twilight's Taylor Lautner - will star alongside Julia Roberts in the fairytale remake

    Up and coming actress Lily Collins has landed the lead in a remake of fairytale Snow White, according to reports.


    The 22-year-old actress, and daughter of genesis rocker Phil Collins first came to our attention in Oscar-winning flick, The Blind Side, starring as Sandra Bullock’s teenage daughter.

    And shortly afterwards, Lily landed the lead in action thriller Abduction alongside rumoured beau, Twi-star and heartthrob Taylor Lautner. Now lovely Lily’s earned herself the lead role in fairytale remake The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, and is said to have ‘blown away Relativity [Media] execs with her audition.’

    The starlet herself confirmed her new part, telling HitFix ‘Yes! I just got cast today!’

    Social Network star Armie Hamer is set to take on the role of the Prince in the flick, while reports suggest Julia Roberts will star as the queen.

    Lily’s upcoming flick is just the latest in a long line of fairytale remakes set to hit screens.

    Amanda Seyfriend’s Red Riding Hood remake swings into cinemas next month, while Kristen Stewart is rumoured to be starring in a Universal remake: Snow White and the Huntsman.

    And Kristen’s leading man? Everyone from Tom Hardy to Johnny Depp have been linked to the part, but K-Stew’s On the Road co-star Viggo Mortenson is close to signing a deal, if rumours are to be believed.

    Oscar-winner Charlize Theron has been confirmed as another star in Kristen’s flick, and will take the role of the Evil Queen Ravenna.
