Isn't it pretty? Snow White surrounded by her seven dwarves? Relativity Media has released new images of their still-untitled "Snow White" project starring "The Blind Side's" Lily Collins in the title role and Julia Roberts as the ultra-fierce Evil Queen.
This one will stay true to the spirit of the Brothers Grimm fable but with a decidedly more edgy take with vengeance at its heart. Snow White is looking for revenge after her evil stepmother kills her father. So who does she call for help? The seven dwarves of course! By the way, the seven little people with big hearts will be played by Jordan Prentice, Joey Gnoffo, Sabastian Saraceno, Martin Klebba, Mark Provinelli and Ronald Lee Clark.
I'm sure the dwarves will not be called Sneezy, Sleepy, Dopey, Doc, Happy, Bashful, and Grumpy.
"The Social Network's" Armie Hammer (gosh, I'm really getting tired of always using that movie to reference the actor) will play the dashing Prince Andrew Alcott in director Tarsem Singh's version.
Relativity better decide on a title for this project as its release date of June 29, 2012 is fast approaching.
I am making a prediction now -- this movie will be nominated for an Oscar for the Best Costume Design next year. Just look at them duds!

Well folks, Fox has confirmed that new installments of the "Die Hard" and "Percy Jackson" franchises are heading to theaters near you whether you like it or not! So yippee ki-yay...you know what's next.
The fifth installment of the franchise that just won't die is now called "A Good Day to Die Hard." Bruce Willis will return to the role of John McClaine, because he's not busy apparently, and I heard that this one will feature the character's son. You know what that means right? McClaine will pass the baton to his son, so yup, this is a franchise that just won't ever, ever die! Hard!
Fox has targeted the much-coveted date of Feb. 14, 2013 because sweethearts all over the world will be in the mood to watch yet another "Die Hard" movie on Valentine's Day. Right? No?
This one will be directed by long-time Fox busy-bee John Moore because loyalty is big in the studio. The guy who gave us the cinematic masterpieces such as "Max Payne" and "The Omen" remake beat out other contenders such as Justin Lin of "Fast Five," and gasp, Nicolas Winding Refn of "Drive" AND Joe Cornish of "Attack the Block!" Yup, this one will definitely suck!
Speaking of sucking, are you excited for another "Percy Jackson" movie? This one's also from Fox and the studio has set the date of March 26, 2013 for the latest one called "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters."
Can I tell you a secret? I was lukewarm with the first "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" but lo and behold, after repeated watching on cable, it actually grew on me. So, the sequel may have a gleam of hope! I thought the second flick would be called "Percy Jackson & the Clash of the Titans," HA!
And now, more Fox release dates (thanks Hollywood Reporter):
Oct. 5, 2012 (Columbus Day weekend) -- "Taken 2" -- who will be taken this time? Liam Neeson?
Oct. 26, 2012 -- "Men & Mavericks" -- Gerard Butler goes surfing
Nov. 21, 2012 (Thanksgiving) -- "Parental Guidance" starring Billy Crystal, Marisa Tomei, and Bette Midler" from director Andy Finkman
Oct. 11, 2013 -- "Walking with Dinosaurs"

It was so much fun to sit down with the main cast of “Footloose.” The film is a love story after all and these two actors succeeded in making us believe in their against all odds romance.
Kenny Wormald is perfect in the role of Ren, the rebellious teen who challenges the status quo, and Julianne Hough can act! We all know her from “Dancing with the Stars” but trust me when I say, she can emote lines as much as performing her dance routines. She plays Ariel, the preacher’s wild child daughter.
In this interview, we talked about:
*** Their interest in working on the movie
*** Working with writer-director Craig Brewer
*** Is Ken nervous that he’s stepping into Kevin Bacon’s big dancing shoes?
*** Julianne is a triple threat – dancer, singer, and now, actress!
*** The dramatic confrontational church scene for Julianne
*** The warehouse, angry dance for Kenny
*** The cameos in the movie
*** Shooting the final dance scene
Here's more info on "Footloose" from Yahoo:
Ren MacCormack is transplanted from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy dose of culture shock. A few years prior, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out and Bomont's local councilmen and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister's troubled daughter Ariel in the process.
