As many of you know, there’s a few new Snow White projects in development. One of these projects is titled Snow White and the Huntsman, which once upon a time had Kristen Stewart in line to star in the lead, and names like Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron said to be up for roles as well.
Theron is still expected to play the Evil Queen and Stewart has since been confirmed to play Snow White in the movie, but her huntsman — expected to be the aforementioned Mortensen — has now changed. It’s been reported and confirmed that Chris Hemsworth, star of the new Marvel summer blockbuster, Thor, will be playing the male lead instead.
The news comes after some whispers of Hemsworth being a possibility for the role were swirling, and it is undoubtedly a strong signing with Hemsworth right on the brink of becoming quite the hot commodity in Hollywood…much the same as we recently saw with someone like Sam Worthington, for instance.
What are your thoughts on Hemsworth in the role of the Huntsman?
