Armie Hammer will be following up his turn in the award winning The Social Network with the J. Edgar Hoover biopic and also The Brothers Grimm: Snow White.
According to Deadline, Relativity Media has closed a deal with Hammer to play Prince Andrew Alcott in its upcoming untitled Snow White feature, based on the Brothers Grimm story, directed by Tarsem Singh.
Hammer joins Julia Roberts who was previously announced in the role of the Queen. Pre-production has begun, and principal photography will start in May. The theatrical release date is set for June 29, 2012.
Relativity's Snow White, a retelling of one of the most beloved fables of all-time, will eschew the traditional story in favor of a more modern tale full of comedy and adventure. After her evil stepmother kills her father and destroys the kingdom, Snow White bands together with a gang of seven quarrelsome dwarfs to reclaim what is rightly hers..
No one has been cast as Snow White yet, but rumors suggest Saoirse Ronan could be cast. The movie is set to release before Universal's Snow White And The Huntsman starring Kristen Stewart.
