The rumors have been flying all over the web since Snow White and the Huntsman was first mentioned, and the studio has been countering for almost the same amount of time that they were looking for a fresh face for the fairy tale character, but Cambio brings word that my greatest nightmare has come true – Kristen Stewart has been chosen for the role of Snow White, despite being up against some impressive names for the role.
The information was revealed when producer Palak Patel announced on Twitter, “KStew is officially playing Snow White and her deal is in final negotiations and will close next week.” He later followed up with, “Official confirmation coming next week but we are in final negotiations.” For some reason, both tweets have been removed from his Twitter page, possibly because of the ‘official confirmation coming next week.’ After all, it doesn’t get much more official than the producer displaying the info for all the world to see so maybe he jumped the gun just a little bit.
Stewart will be joining Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen, and possibly Viggo Mortensen, who is in talks for the role of the Huntsman. He also happens to be on the list of names being considered as General Zod in the new Superman movie so he might have to choose between the two. Personally, since Stewart is attached to this film now, I’d prefer to see him go against Supes.
Snow White and the Huntsman is scheduled for release on December 21, 2012.
