In addition to announcing the seven dwarfs, Relativity Media also makes it official that Mare Winningham and Michael Lerner have been tapped to play in the movie.
Relativity Media is moving quickly to win the "Snow White" battle against Universal Pictures. After announcing the new release date for its forthcoming version of the fairy tale, the company makes it official that "Snow White" has found its seven dwarfs.
In a press release, Relativity Media announces that Mark Povinelli ("Water for Elephants"), Jordan Prentice ("Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle"), Danny Woodburn ("Watchmen"), Sebastian Saraceno ("Bedtime Stories"), Ronald Lee Clark ("Epic Movie"), Martin Klebba ("Hancock") and Joe Gnoffo have been cast to portray the dwarfs. Additionally, Mare Winningham ("Brothers") and Michael Lerner ("Elf") are added to play Baker Margaret and Baron respectively.
Those newly-cast actors will join Lily Collins, who will star as the titular character. Julia Roberts, in the meantime, will portray the evil queen, with Armie Hammer portraying Prince Andrew Alcott and Nathan Lane taking the role of Brighton, the queen's hapless and bungling servant.
Directed by Tarsem Singh, the fantasy movie will revolve around Snow White, an exiled princess who bands together with a gang of seven quarrelsome dwarfs to reclaim her birthright after her evil stepmother kills her father and destroys the kingdom. Principal photography will start in June to meet the theatrical release date of March 16, 2012.
