Elvis Presley's granddaughter as 'Snow White'?

The Seven Dwarves might be all shook up by the latest casting news on Universal's live-action "Snow White and the Huntsman": Elvis Presley's granddaughter is being wooed to star as the movie's heroine.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the studio initially had its eye on Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning to play Snow White before looking to Riley Keough, their co-star in "The Runaways."

The 21-year-old model/actress, who is the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley, is said to be a favorite for the role of the orphan girl on the run from the evil queen, who will reportedly be played by Charlize Theron.

Keough – who will appear opposite Orlando Bloom in "The Good Doctor" next year and is in talks to star in the next "Mad Max" movie – joins a shortlist of young actresses who are said to be screen-testing for Snow White, including English actress Felicity Jones, Swedish star Alicia Vikander, and Aussie Bella Heathcoat.

Meanwhile, Theron isn't the only evil queen in town. Deadline.com reports that Julia Roberts is also set to play the wicked royal in a rival film, "The Brothers Grimm: Snow White."

    Jeez people just because she is related to Elvis doesnt make her talented. Elvis had talent to spare his descendants not so much.
    If the media and Hollywood truly did not know who these people were, if they didn't self promote non of you would give them a second glance.

    WOW! What a beauty! I think she will look stunning with dark hair. Watch out established actresses, there' a new girl in town, and I believe she is the faurest of them all.
