Saoirse Ronan is in talks to play Snow White.
The Irish actress could star in Tarsem Singh's adaptation of the Brothers Grimm classic fairytale alongside Julia Roberts as the Queen, reported Deadline.com.
The Social Network's Armie Hammer, who is currently filming Clint Eastwood's J Edgar with Leonardo DiCaprio, has been confirmed for the role of Prince Andrew Alcott.
Pre-production on the film, produced by Brett Ratner, Ryan Kavanaugh and Bernie Goldmann, has begun, with a release date set for 2012.
"Relativity's Snow White, a retelling of one of the most beloved fables of all-time, will eschew the traditional story in favour of a more modern tale full of comedy and adventure," the statement said.
"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."
