Kristen Stewart could wrestle “Thor” in “Snow White” flick


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: There has been a fair share of back and forth between “Thor” star Chris Hemsworth and the casting department of “Snow White and the Huntsman,” a production that currently has Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Sam Clafin (“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”) attached.

Today is more “forth” than “back.”

Hemsworth, it seems, has entered official talks to play the title huntsman in Universal’s planned feature, according to Variety. Fresh off his turn in “Thor” – and in between shooting “The Avengers” for Joss Whedon – Hemsworth would play a warrior tracking Snow White (Stewart) in a bold retelling of the classic fable. Theron would play the evil queen, while relative newcomer Clafin would star as a prince.

But the huntsman, Eric, is a meatier role, and Universal has had a hard time finding the right fit, shuffling through Viggo Mortensen, Hugh Jackman and Johnny Depp (if you believe the rumors) before landing — and staying – on Hemsworth.

Will it stick? We’ll find out. The actor seems tied up at Paramount, but Universal has been expressing interest for some time. And even if “Huntsman” solidifies its cast, it’s still in a race to beat Tarsem Singh’s rival “Snow White” picture – with Julia Roberts – to theaters. We’ll see what transpires in fairy tale land.
