Director talks next year's Snow White face-off

Moviegoers will see double at the theaters next year as two "Snow White" movies are rolled out within weeks of each other, but at least they'll see Relativity Pictures' version of Snow White first, says director Tarsem Singh.

Singh's take on the tale stars Lily Collins as the fair princess, Armie Hammer as the prince and Julia Roberts as the evil queen, and is currently scheduled for a March, 2012 release. Meanwhile, Universal's "Snow White and the Huntsman," starring Kristen Stewart as Snow White, "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth as the huntsman, Sam Claflin as the prince and Charlize Theron as the cruel royal, is being prepped for a June, 2012 open.

The thing is, Singh tells New York Magazine's Vulture, that spin on the fairy tale can handle being released second in line, whereas his film....not so much.

"I mean, Universal's such a big machine, and they'd still be able to sell it to you as a different film," Singh explained. "I don't think we could have come out second and made it work. We had to be first."

Although they are "two different films," he goes on, "The problem that I always find is that it's not like two disaster movies...these are two movies with Snow White, and I don't think there's too much room in the market for it, but I could be proven wrong."

Singh has said that his Snow White movie will be like looking at "Gaudi's architecture, based in England, done [as] a turn-of-the-century Russian film by an Indian guy," whereas "Snow White and the Huntsman" is striving to be more in the vein of "Lord of the Rings." Check out some of the art for the latter "Snow White" below:

    I'm hate blondes so much that even when someone insults me I assume that they are blonde. Can't you see how much I hate blondes because I talk of the girls at playboy. I'm so fat eating my ton of lard every day and trying to walk around this ton of lard for an az$ that I hate anything that looks good. I'm so unhappy with my fat ugly self.

    I should kill myself for making such a stupid remark. I'm sorry world for breathing the same air. All the hair dye that I use to cover up my gray hair went into my brain cells and i'm even more stupid now than I was when I was born with my dark locks.

    When my mother was giving birth the cord was wrapped around my neck too tight that's why I think the color of people's hair makes them smart or stupid.

    @Gillian: So only blondes get botox and implants? With that comment, it just goes to show that stupid doesn't comes by the color of a person's hair.

    The queen should be brunette Tina Fey would be awesome,her humor and wittiness not to mention her subtle beauty would've been perfection.

    Methinks Ill go see the 2nd one. Kinda partial to Chris Hemsworth. And I dare anyone to make Julia a hotter evil Queen than CT! No Im not a lesbian (although my husband wouldnt mind sometimes) but Im a female and can get away with saying another woman is hot if I want to so bully to all the snide remarks!

    I didn't know about either of these movies until I read this, but will definitely see both. Especially since they seem to have great stars in both.
