Fox Searchlight and Indian Paintbrush announced today that they have set a July 1st release for Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s (American Horror Story) ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,’ which bagged the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award for Best U.S. Dramatic Feature at Sundance. From the Black List script by Jesse Andrews based on his novel, the plot follows Greg (Thomas Mann), who is coasting through senior year of high school as anonymously as possible, avoiding social interactions like the plague while secretly making spirited, bizarre films with Earl (RJ Cyler), his only friend. But both his anonymity and friendship threaten to unravel when his mother forces him to befriend a classmate with leukemia (Olivia Cooke). Nick Offerman, Connie Britton and Molly Shannon co-star.

Deadline bring word that two-time Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain has joined the cast of the tentatively titled ‘The Huntsman,’ the prequel to 2012’s ‘Snow White and the Huntsman.’ Visual effects specialist Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, who earned a Visual Effects Oscar nomination for his work on the first film, takes the helm for his feature directorial debut. Frank Darabont, who had been set to direct before bowing out earlier this year due to creative differences, wrote the screenplay, with earlier drafts by Craig Mazin and Evan Spiliotopoulos.

Emily Blunt will play the lead villain, joining Chris Hemsworth, who will reprise his role as The Huntsman from the original. The prequel sends The Huntsman on a quest to find the magic mirror, which has been stolen, forcing him to face not only his past but also the evil Snow Queen. Charlize Theron will return as the villainous Ravenna and Blunt is playing her sister, the Snow Queen. It is currently unknown who Jessica Chastain will play.
