Julia RobertsFeb 9, (THAINDIAN NEWS) After “Eat Pray Love”, Julia Roberts has confirmed her entry into yet another big budget flick, “The Brothers Grimm: Snow White”. However, unlike her other films, where she is seen in positive roles, in this flick, she would play the role of the infamous wicked queen. All these days, she was in negotiation with Ryan Kavanaugh, the owner of relativity media and the recent confirmation came up as a huge delight to all her fans.

Ryan Kavanaugh said that Julia Roberts was the only name that they considered for this role, ever since they conceived the idea for this film, whose final title is yet to be decided. According to him, the “pretty Woman” is an icon, who knows how to play any role with full conviction, like no one else in this industry. The film will be directed by Tarsem Singh, who earned his share of fame after directing “Immortals”. The company has also said that the film will be released on June 29, 2012, and its shooting will start in April. Melissa Wallack and Jason Keller, the two scrip writer said that they have created the traditional story on modern lines, with a good tinge of humor and adventure, to finally establish the prevalence of good over evil.

However, the irony is that, even Universal is planning to release yet another flick on Snow White, called “Snow White and the Huntsman”, to be directed by Rupert Sanders. In this film, the evil queen will be played by Charlize Theron. Sources say that these two films that would be released on the same year are bound to get subjected to intense comparison. Many sources feel that in such cases, the film that releases first, gets the edge over the other. However, considering the involvement of a brand name like Julia Roberts, the notion may be proved false in the case of Snow White.
