Viggo Mortensen and Kristen Stewart are up for title roles in Universal’s Snow White And The Huntsman. I’ll leave it to you to figure out which actor is up for which role.
Mortesen is currently in negotiations to appear in the film, knocking out of contention the likes of Tom Hardy and Johnny Depp.
Although Stewart is not in talks with the studio yet, though Variety is reporting that Universal is considering the actress after reviewing screen tests from Riley Keough, Felicity Jones and Alicia Vikander and Emily Browning.
Evan Daugherty’s take on the popular fairy tale tells the story of the Huntsman who is sent by the Evil Queen to kill Snow White but instead has pity on her and teaches her the way of the forest before she meets her handsome prince. Charlize Theron is already in talks to play the Evil Queen. No one has been mentioned in connection with the part for the prince.
Universal and director Rupert Sanders are hoping to have production underway this summer for a December 21, 2012 release. The studio is racing to get their film into before the several competing Snow White projects at other studios.
