'Snow White' Movie(s) Casting: Charlize Theron, Julia Roberts in the Hunt to Play Evil Queen

The next trend you'll see in Hollywood is a rehashing (and retelling) of all your favorite fairytales. A darker Red Riding Hood movie is already set to debut next year, and, like the competing Wizard of Oz projects, there are now competing Snow White productions. Both Snow White movies are now beginning to look for talent in an effort to be the first to hit theaters. Which one looks better? Let's discuss…

Julia Roberts and Charlize Theron

Snow White and the Huntsman
 
What's It About: "A huntsman is ordered to take Snow White into the woods and kill her but instead he chooses to let her go and the two are evidently chained together for part of the movie as they make their escape." [via IMDB]
 
Who's In It: No one right now, though Charlize Theron is now rumored to be up for the role of The Wicked Queen, while Michael Fassbender is being sought to play The Huntsman. Meanwhile, the studio is looking to cast an up-and-comer as Snow White, turning their attention to ladies like Riley Keough, who's actually Elvis Presley's granddaughter. Also on their shortlist are Felicity Jones, Bella Heathcoat and Alicia Vikander.
 
The Brothers Grimm: Snow White
 
What's It About: This film doesn't have an official synopsis, but it's said to be based on the original Brothers Grimm fairytale, Little Snow-White, and is similar to the original Disney tale, but also a bit darker.
 
Who's In It: No one has been cast yet, though they do have a director: Tarsem Singh. He's the guy behind The Fall and Immortals, and his films are all about the visual flair. Apparently, Julia Roberts is now being sought to play The Evil Queen for this Snow White movie, though nothing is official.
 
So now that you've taken in both productions, which one sounds more appetizing?
