Fresh off his fantastic turn in HBO’s Game of Thrones, Sean Bean is in final negotiations to take on the role of the King in Relativity Media’s Untitled Snow White Project. Directed by Tarsem Singh, the film stars Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer, Lily Collins, and Nathan Lane. Described as a “spirited adventure comedy,” the story see Snow White (Collins) regaining her birthright as princess with the aid of her trustful seven dwarves.
Variety reports that Bean’s King is White’s father. His kingdom is destroyed by the evil Queen played by Roberts. Singh’s film is one of several Snow White projects in development, most notably Universal’s rival film Snow White and the Huntsman with Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth. Following a bitter release date war (that was expertly analyzed by our faithful numbers man Brendan), Relativity settled on March 16th, 2012 as the opening date for this project.
