What do you do after you play Snow White? Go back to school, apparently.

The star of director Tarsem Singh's still-untitled "Snow White" project (why not just call it "Snow White" at this point?) has responded "Here!" to the attendance call of the new indie comedy, "The English Teacher," according to Deadline.

"The English Teacher" stars Julianne Moore as a beloved high school English teacher whose repressed personal life contrasts wildly with the passion she brings to the classroom. When a former student (Michael Angarano) returns home after failing as a playwright in New York City, she encourages him to mount his unproduced script at the school, which creates all sorts of drama -- and not just on the stage.

Collins will be playing a student who clashes with the teacher (but who, we're assuming, will probably end up playing the lead role in the play). The cast also includes Greg Kinnear (as, we're assuming, Moore's husband who probably always looks worried and/or confused) and Nathan Lane (as, we're assuming, the somewhat "theatrical" school principal -- just going out on a limb, here).

Lily Collins was recently seen running for her life alongside Taylor Lautner in "Abduction." She'll appear as the Fairest of Them All in "Snow White," which opens March 16, 2012, and will be playing the role of Clary Fray in "The Mortal Instruments."

"The English Teacher" started shooting this week in New York City under the direction of Craig Zisk ("Weeds," "Nurse Jackie").
