On the one hand, Kristen Stewart will interpret the heroine in a more warlike production, while Lily Collins will opt for a more romantic role in Mirror, Mirror.
The first cinematic project is called Mirror, Mirror and it revisits the traditional Brothers Grimm tale by mixing comedy and adventure.
In the movie, a young princess in exile (Lily Collins) recruits seven tiny men to regain her rights and her lost kingdom from the hands of an evil queen (Julia Roberts).
The role of the hunter was obtained by Viggo Mortensen who will be a kind of mentor for Snow White in the new adaptation of the story and chooses to guide her through the unknown world outside the castle.
An adventure full of action, strange creatures, humor, love, betrayal and friendship will lead us in the heart of a more modern and dark version of the childhood story.
Directed by Tarsem Singh, the movie is set for release in March 2012.
Snow White and the Huntsman
In the second adaptation, titled Snow White and the Huntsman and directed by Rupert Sanders, the Queen (Charlize Theron) sends the hunter (Chris “Thor” Hemsworth) in search of Snow White (Kristen Stewart).
In order to live forever and remain the most beautiful woman in the kingdom, the queen must eat Snow White’s heart and it is the hunter who will bring it to her on a silver platter.
Sam Claflin plays the prince, enchanted by the beauty and strength of Snow White.
But obviously, it would be too good if all went as planned, so instead we will be entitled to nice epic battles, music and a Snow White armor.
The film will arrive in theaters in June 2012.
The two films are very different even if the source of inspiration is the same.
Snow White and the Huntsman changes the story by turning it into an action film with special effects, while Mirror, Mirror is more family-oriented due to its fairy tale atmosphere and comedy.
