We now have news to bring you of the other project, which has already finished production under the direction of Tarsem Singh, whose latest film, Immortals, comes out at the end of this week.
Until now, it has long been without a title, referred to simply as Tarsem Singh’s Untitle Snow White Project. But Collider report that Relativity Media have announced it has finally found its title with an appropriately fairy-tale theme, and it will be called Mirror Mirror. In the press release announcing the title also comes a brief synopsis, which doesn’t give much away, but is still nice to read all the same:
“The newly titled film Mirror Mirror, stars breakout star Lily Collins (The Blind Side) as an exiled princess who enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright and Oscar®-winner Julia Roberts as an evil Queen who steals control of a kingdom, in a magical adventure comedy filled with jealousy, romance, and betrayal that will capture the imagination of audiences the world over. The film also stars Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as the object of their affection, Prince Andrew Alcott, and Nathan Lane (The Birdcage) as the hapless and bungling servant to the Queen.”
Mirror Mirror is due out in the US on 16th March next year, and though no release date has been announced in the UK yet, I’d be surprised if we’ll have long to wait, if at all, after the US gets it until we see it. Without Kristen Stewart’s Snow White and the Huntsman due in the summer, the studio will no doubt want to keep some distance between the two films’ release dates, which is fine by me, because it means we should get to see this sooner rather than later.
We’ve already had two sets of great images from the film, and it looks to have come out really well. The vision of the two films looks to be very different, so we can hope for two excellent and varied takes on the same Snow White tale in 2012. With a title now in place, we can no doubt look forward to the start of posters and trailers for Mirror Mirror surfacing in the coming months, so be sure to check back in to catch up on the latest from the fairy-tale story.
