Story by Jack Foley

JULIA Roberts has completed a deal to star as the Evil Queen in Tarsem Singh’s Snow White reboot.

Based on the classic Brothers Grimm fable, the film promises a more modern-edged take on the story, which finds Snow White looking for payback along with her band of seven dwarves after her evil stepmother kills her father.

Melissa Wallack and Jason Keller have written the script for Singh to begin shooting in April. The film has been given a June 29, 2012, release in America.

Roberts has been busy of late, having completed Eat Pray Love last year and recently reuniting with Tom Hanks on the Universal comedy Larry Crowne, which opens in the US in July.
