Julia Roberts Will Play Snow White’s Evil Queen

Jula RobertsWe’ve never really seen her be a villain . . . but, we’re pretty sure she’ll nail it. Hollywood A-lister Julia Roberts has just signed up to play the evil Queen in the new film adaptation of Snow White -- and no, this isn’t voice-over work.

Relativity Media isn’t making this one for young kids and family audiences. Their version of the well-known fairy tale will "will eschew the traditional story in favor of a more modern tale full of comedy and adventure." And while that sounds pretty dismal to us, we’re willing to hold off on judgment and hold out hope. After all, Julia Roberts is involved.

Snow White is about to get a huge boost in popular culture, which may be good news for those who are tired of Disney’s animated 1937 joint. Charlize Theron will play the Queen in Universal's Snow White and The Huntsman, and Disney is also planning a new adaptation of the original German fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm.

Roberts will go to work on the film sometime in April, and it’s scheduled for release in June 2012.
