Casting news!

It was announced over this weekend that Lily Collins got the part as the snow white in The Brothers Grimm: Snow White movie, apparently it’ll be in 3D. She talked to People Magazine about it and here’s what she said: “Snow White was my favourite fairy tale [growing up], and when I first read about the project, I was like, ‘I have to get in on this’. It’s such an iconic character.” Oh, really?

I don’t know what to say about this choice. Rumours first said that Saoirse Ronan was in talks for the production, but apparently she lost it (or is The Hobbit creating scheduling conflicts?!). But to Lily Collins? I have nothing against the girl, but Saiorse is an extraordinary actress and I have watched The Lovely Bones and  Atonement like a hundred times each and I can honestly tell you, this girl is one of a kind. Her acting is incredibly awesome and believable. As for Lily Collins, I only watched The Blind Side (and honestly, is she even on that?! It’s like 5 seconds) and she didn’t surprise me. It didn’t click, you know?

My suggestion would be Ellen Page. I think she did an amazing job in Juno, in Inception and I think she is a terrific actress. Or maybe, Mila Kunis?! just brainstorming, but I just think prince charming looks kind of old for Lily…

As for prince charming, Armie Hammer was casted and, for this one I can say, he did an AMAZING job in The Social Network as the Winklevossess, and I’m sure he can handle this job (I’m so excited for J. Edgar!). But don’t you think it’s a weird couple? Let me know your opinions!

See ya,


P.S.: Julia Roberts is set to play the Evil queen in the movie. Big, huge chance for Lily, because every movie Julia Roberts is part of, it’s a hit. Let’s hope she does her best.
