The screenwriter and co-producer of ‘Snow White and The Huntsman,’ Palak Patel, revealed via his Twitter account (before deleting the tweets) that Kirsten Stewart has been confirmed to portray Snow White in the upcoming fairy tale re-imagining. Charlize Theron has signed on to portray the Evil Queen, while Viggo Mortensen is said to be in negotiations to play the Huntsman.

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 believe 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.
