Well, this gets me a bit more interested in Universal’s Snow White And The Huntsman. The studio has just cast British actor Ian McShane in the role of the lead dwarf, Caesar. Unlike the Disney movie, this version of Snow White will feature eight dwarves, all of whom are named after Roman emperors rather than their dominate personality trait.
The film is expected to start production in August under the direction of Rupert Sanders, with Kristen Stewart as the princess Snow White, who escapes from her evil stepmother (Charlize Theron) and is taught how to fight to regain her kingdom by the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) the Queen sent to killer her.
Needless to say, at five foot, eight inches tall, the production will be using both on set and post-production visual effects tricks to “shrink” the actor down to his character’s height.
This is also not the only fairy tale movie McShane will be in. He is also playing King Brahmwell in Bryan Singer’s upcoming Jack The Giant Killer which is currently in production.
Snow White And The Huntsman is scheduled to hit theaters on June 1, 2012.
