Hey folks, Harry here...
Now, first off - I hate THE BROTHERS GRIMM: being tacked on to SNOW WHITE. I'd prefer the title to be SNOW WHITE - with a possesory THE BROTHERS GRIMM'S above it, but not directly tied to the title. There's just something dead about having their name and a colon. Maybe I'm alone with that.
That said - Julia Roberts as an incredibly vain aging beauty of a queen that is threatened by the perfect innocent beauty of SNOW WHITE, well it's kinda perfect. Now, we do have a very bizarre rival project coming up - as it seems that 2012 will be the year of SNOW WHITE (unless you're obsessed with THE AVENGERS like me), young talented commercial director, Rupert Sanders is helming SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN with Kristen Stewart and Viggo Mortensen as the Huntsman.
Now personally - I'm fascinated to see a Tarsem directed SNOW WHITE with Julia Roberts doing a bit of Baby Jane as the Evil Queen. Tarsem's stunning production design - combined with the lyrical emotional power that he gained in THE FALL... well, I'm curious.
Now Rupert Sanders... he's got a tough battle here, because he is yet to be established as a feature film director. He came very close a couple of years ago to helming a flick with Leonardo DiCaprio, but it apparently has fallen through. I don't know if I'm curious to see his version, because we're yet to know what he's capable of in a feature story.
But for now - let's think about who should be SNOW WHITE - opposite Julia Roberts' Evil Queen. Personally - I'm thinking Anne Hathaway. I mean, if there is a young beautiful actress that would drive Julia crazy, it'd have to be Anne. Right?
I just thought. 2012 will totally be the year of the Dwarfs. I mean, two SNOW WHITE films and THE HOBBIT? That's at least 27 Dwarves. That's a shit load of Jeff Mahlers...
