The daughter of pop singer Phil Collins has been making a name for herself in Hollywood. Lily Collins will play Lucy in Screen Gems May 13th 3D post-apocalyptic comic book movie, Priest, alongside Paul Bettany (Legion) and Maggie Q (“Nikita”). The actress, who’s best known for her performance as Sandra Bullock’s daughter in the Oscar-winning The Blind Side, will step into the coveted role of Snow White in Relativity Media’s June 2012 summer release. Collins, who was at WonderCon 2011, talks about Priest, comic books, 3D movies, and video games like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon in this exclusive video interview.
Priest is an action thriller set in an alternate world — one ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest (Paul Bettany) from the last Vampire War who now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece (Lily Collins) is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on an obsessive quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece’s boyfriend (Cam Gigandet), a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess (Maggie Q) who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.
Collins will team up with Julia Roberts, who will play the wicked queen plotting to kill Snow White in the new movie. The film will be directed by Tarsem Singh, who was also at WonderCon 2011 showing his new 3D movie, Immortals, starring Superman Henry Cavill.
“Snow White was my favorite fairytale [growing up], and when I first read about the project, I was like, ‘I have to get in on this,'” Collins told People Magazine.
