Universal Pictures look like they’re closing in on the actress to portray Snow White in the upcoming fairy tale re-telling ‘Snow White and The Huntsman.’ Both Charlize Theron and Viggo Mortensen have got the casting ball rolling as the Evil Queen and the Huntsman respectively (they‘re both in negotiations). Now the Hollywood Reporter have revealed that Kristen Stewart is in talks to star in the film. Apparently ”the deal is not done and could still fall apart, but both sides want it to happen.”

Universal Pictures re-telling of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale will feature an expanded role for the part of the Huntsman, in the original version he is ordered to take Snow White into the woods and kill her, but instead lets her go. In the new take the Huntsman serves as Snow White’s mentor, teaching Snow White to fight and survive against the evil queen. Hopefully this will be a meatier role for Stewart, I think in some circles she gets a bad wrap for her character in the Twilight movies, for me that can be attributed to the role being so poorly written (sulk, mope, bite-lip, look miserable…repeat), not do with her acting chops. In my eyes she showcased in Adventureland that she‘s definitely got talent. Snow White and The Huntsman aims to shoot this summer in time for it’s December 21st 2012 release date.
