Sean Bean, hot off his regal performance in HBO’s Game of Thrones, is in final negotiations to play yet another monarch, this time Snow White’s father in Relativity’s untitled Snow White adventure movie.

The pic, currently shooting in Montreal with Tarsem Singh behind in the director’s chair, sees Julia Roberts as the evil queen and Lily Collins as her step-daughter who vie for the affection of a prince (Armie Hammer). The queen wants to destroy Snow’s beauty in her blind determination to be the most beautiful in the land.

If the movie is anything like the fairy tale, things do not end well for the man, which is consistent with many of Beans’ characters, whether it’s Boromir in the Lord of the Rings movies or Eddard Stark in Thrones.
