    Attention Kristen Stewart!

    While Twi-hards everywhere anxiously await for you to take on the role of Snow White in Snow White and the Huntsman, we just got some hot new scoop on your fairest-of-them-all competition...

    READ: Who thinks Armie will make a fantastic Lone Ranger?

    Sounds like Lily Collins is going to make for one fine Snow White herself.

    "She's perfect for this role," Collins' onscreen prince Armie Hammer told us at last night's UCLA Screenwriters Showcase honoring Aaron Sorkin. "It's like she was born to play Snow White. She just has that look, and she carries herself like a girl who's petite, but also, when she gets a sword in her hand...It's perfect."

    Hammer returned to Montreal today to continue preproduction on the upcoming retelling of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale.

    "We're in the middle of training now," he dished. "So I basically go up there, I'm with all of the stunt guys, we warm up, we do some boxing, and then we grab the swords and we swordfight for like three hours."

    But don't bother asking the Social Network star for specifics on the film.

    "Our [Snow White] takes place in the future, in the year 2040," Hammer said. "Everyone has replaced all their limbs with bionic limbs, and it's more of an existential crisis-type movie than the typical telling of Snow White."

    Don't worry. He was only joking.
