The upcoming action-fantasy film starring Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth & Charlize Theron is based loosely on the fairytale penned by the Brothers Grimm and scheduled for a June 2012 theatrical release.
In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) who was dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power.
The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.
Snow White and the Huntsman stars Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, Noah Huntley, Lily Cole, Sam Spruell and Liberty Ross. Playing the dwarfs are Ian McShane as the group's leader Caesar, Toby Jones will take on the role of the timid Claudius, Bob Hoskins will play the blind Constantine, and Eddie Izzard will portray the burly Tiberius. Ray Winstone , Eddie Marsan (as twins Trajan and Hadrian) and Stephen Graham (who is set for the grumpy dwarf Nero) round out the troupe which will also feature a mysterious eighth dwarf. Rupert Sanders will be directing the Joe Roth produced film which Universal Pictures has scheduled for theatrical release on June 1st, 2012.
