Tarsem Singh Finds His Seven Dwarfs
Including Watchmen's Danny Woodburn...
It’s all go over at Relativity Media’s take on Snow White, which just this week made yet another release date switch to plant itself once again ahead of Universal’s competing Snow White and the Huntsman. Now the film, which has Tarsem Singh in the director’s chair, has announced the casting of the movie’s Seven Dwarfs, with Mark Povinelli, Jordan Prentice, Danny Woodburn, Sebastian Saraceno, Ronald Lee Clark, Martin Klebba and Joey Gnoffo winning the key roles.
Woodburn might be the most recognisable of those since his memorable turn as diminutive gangster Big Figure in Watchmen. But Povinelli was seen in Water for Elephants, Prentice is a Harold & Kumar veteran, Saraceno cropped up in Bedtime Stories, Clark was in Epic Movie, Klebba appeared in Hancock and Gnoffo had a role in The Benchwarmers.
Also signing on are Mare Winningham, playing Baker Margaret and Michael Lerner as Baron. They’re all joining a cast that already includes Lily Collins as the titular princess banished by the Queen (Julia Roberts) who must team up with the rebellious dwarfs to take back her rightful kingdom. Oh, and there’s also Armie Hammer as Prince Andrew Alcott and Nathan Lane as the Queen’s hapless servant, Brighton.
With that March 2012 release date looming, Singh is kicking off shooting shortly.
