With all this talk if Kristen Stewart does not take the role of Snow White that Selena Gomez is in the running, I figured I would let loose a few reasons to why Selena would be a great Snow White. Yes, I already know that this version of Snow White is going to be a lot darker as you can tell just from the title of Snow White and the Huntsman. I still think this could be a nice transition role for Selena as she is now 18 and might want to distance herself with just kids roles, while not going overboard.
1. She has that innocent Snow White look. Yes I know this is a darker Snow White film, but the character of Snow White still has an innocence attached to it and Selena Gomez has that look. The fact that Selena has not been involved in any scandals is also a plus when thinking of her for this role.
2. She is half way there with the look and hair. Wigs can be put on anyone’s head, but Selena already has that dark straight Snow White hair. You can just picture a bow in it. Now what angle they will be going with for this movie, the iconic Disney character is still what is in everyone’s mind. The closer to that look, while at the same time still being a bit gritty, should help make the transition from Disney Snow White to Snow White and the Huntsman for the audience.
3. She knows about witches and wizards. She is on Wizards of Waverly Place and knows all about those nasty witches and a thing or two about magic. Hey it always helps to have a background in the subject. Plus who better to know the character of Snow White from the classic stance than the Disney Darling herself.
4. Selena Gomez is ready for a grown up role. She needs to take that next step and doing a darker Snow White would help her accomplish that, while not making a movie that might have scandal. At least that is my thought, who knows if this version has any sort of darker sex scenes in it, hopefully not, because then I say drop out of the running for her.
5. She can sing. This version of Snow White may not have any singing, but who knows? If they birds and forest animals break out into song, Selena will be ready for her part of the musical aspect of the movie.
It seems that this is not the only Snow White project in the works, Snow And The Seven which is the Disney Reboot which should stay closer to the cartoon has Natalie Portman currently attached to it. While I think this would be a good fit for Selena as well, I don’t think it would be as great as a jump off point for her for two reasons. The first being it is attached to Disney and the second being is that it is probably another young type role for her. The second is I think she is ready to make that next big step to the screen with a role that will challenge her a bit and move her career along.
Do you have any other reasons?
