Julia Roberts has officially signed on to play the meanest stepmother of all time, in an untitled Snow White film project set to be released in June 2012 ... six months before Snow White and the Huntsman hits theaters, featuring Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen.

Ryan Kavanaugh, CEO of film company Relativity Media, said in a statement:

    "Julia was our first and only choice to play the Queen. She is an icon, and we know that she will make this role her own in a way that no one else could."

The untitled film is based on Tarsem Singh's adaptation of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs have yet to be cast in either film, but Kristen Stewart has been the rumored Snow White frontrunner for Huntsman.

Roberts' version will be a modern retelling of the story, featuring "more comedy and adventure", according to Variety.

We can't wait to see either film; it's been a long time since Snow White got an update!

Who will be the hotter Evil Queen: Julia or Charlize?
