Lily Collins to star as Snow White in fairytale retelling

Lily Collins will take the title role in a big-screen retelling of Snow White.

Phil Collins' daughter will appear alongside Julia Roberts - who will play the Evil Queen - in The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, according to People Magazine.

"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,'" she commented.

The Tarsem Singh-directed 3D movie will also star Armie Hammer as the Prince and is expected to hit cinemas in summer 2012.

Produced by Relativity Media, the film will compete with another Snow White project from Universal next year.

The rival studio has signed up Kristen Stewart for the title role and Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen

Lily Collins made her film debut in The Blind Side in 2009 and is also due to begin filming on Mortal Instruments this year.
