Phil Collins' daughter cast as Snow White

Phil Collins may be getting ready to retire, but his daughter's career looks like it's about to skyrocket.

Lily Collins has officially been cast as Snow White in an upcoming live-action version of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale co-starring Julia Roberts.

Collins, who played Sandra Bullock's daughter in "The Blind Side" and will next be seen in the action-adventure "The Mortal Instruments," reportedly wowed the Snow White producers with her audition, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The still untitled 3-D film, set for release June 29, 2012,  stars Roberts as the Evil Queen and "The Social Network's" Armie Hammer as the Prince.

As Marquee previously reported, a second Snow White film is also in the works: "Snow White and the Huntsman," starring Kristen Stewart as the damsel in distress and Charlize Theron as the wicked queen, is slated to arrive in theaters in December 2012.

Which Snow White movie is shaping up to have the better cast?

    she was/is such a terrible choice. they only picked her because her daddy is a famous musician and she dated Taylor Lautner- who unlike her dad is very trendy right now- so how shallow can you BE? I dont think she will make a good actor for any movie, and she isn't above average at all; the very def of average looking, just like her near-twin Elizabeth Taylor. Snow is supposed to be a natural beauty and STRIKING! As in Lucy Hale, Camilla Belle, actually stunning people who get by on talent, not nepotism!

    and AgentM is pretty much right, except she isnt very pretty.

    She is very pretty. Neopotism goes a long way. That's how Julia AND her homely niece got started. The napkin I used at breakfast has more appeal that KStew

    I can't believe how people are speaking about this young lady. Disgusting. I think she is a very beautiful girl, and I'd love to see the pictures of all those who are making fun of her looks.

    She wasn't up against Kristen Stewart for the part. There are two Snow White films in progress and Kristen Stewart
    is in the other.

    Leave the poor kid alone.

    Please, nobody tell me she got the part on her own, without daddy's connections.
    This young lady is, ahem, average looking at best.
    Maybe she should go the bald route like her dad. that would bring out her eyes more.

    Isn't snow white suppose to be th fairest in the land? Furthermore, people whose eyebrows and hair don't match look positively ridiculous. So, she's a fail. I don't like Kristen Stewart and love Julia Roberts, so I was planning to see this Snow White movie. Now, both movies are off my list.

    I did hide under the bed after seeing that picture. I came back out after Kelly rubbed Peanut butter on those hard to reach body parts. This is the only way Kelly can get any action.

    With all the RUDE comments about this girl, I have only this to say:


    This is why you are all hating on this girl, you are not happy with the choices YOU made in life so hating on someone else makes you feel better. She already has more money then you do, go on, show some more jealousy, you've made it clear that you are.

    She's not ugly it's just her eyebrows are too dark for her hair color. I can't wait to see the movie! I heard she was up against Kristen Stewart for the part, I'm glad they picked her!

    I think this is a bunch of racism. Why do they call this snow white and not snow black ? Black snow would look nicer anyways. Buncha dang racist.

    I think it is really disgusting that people would talk about a young lady like that. She may not be your cup of tea, but no one deserves to be spoken about like that. Good for her and pursuing a career she loves. I think there is a lot of jealousy going around...

    She's not *that* ugly...I mean, she just looks really bad in the photo because she neglected to bleach her eyebrows to match her hair and that hair color doesn't suit her complexion (it washes her out). She was somewhat cute in "The Blind Side" as a brunette.

      are you trying to troll, or are you just a moron? a white girl who look slike a white girl? OMG HOW WIERD!!!!1 yeah, she's not stunning, what does her being white or "looking" it have to do with anything?
      Taylor Swift isn't very pretty and she "looks Asian". Angelina Jolie is overrated and she "looks black". racist.

      This girl is pretty...and you're what? A supermodel compared to her? I'm 99.9% sure that you can in no way compete with this beautiful woman, so you try to make yourself feel better by putting this actress down. I can even imagine what you'd say about a TRULY ugly person....although you could go look in the mirror.
