Kristen Stewart may be still bizzy filming the final two movies of The Twilight Saga film franchise but that doesn’t mean she can’t look ahead to her first post-Twilight acting gig. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Stewart has been offered the lead role of Snow White in the planned upcoming live action film Snow White and the Huntsman. If she decides to take the part, the magazine reports, the iconic role of Snow White is hers.
Who’s the fairest of them all? We think we know! Sources tell EW that Kristen Stewart has been offered the part of Snow White in Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman, to be directed by Rupert Sanders. As EW has previously reported, this project has been heating up, with both Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron in “final talks” to play the Huntsman and evil queen, respectively. Stewart has long been at the top of the list (other names mentioned include Swedish actress Alicia Vikander, Felicity Jones, Bella Heathcote, and Elvis granddaughter Riley Keough), and if the deal is finalized, it will be her first post-Twilight project.
On the one hand, I love the idea of a live-action Snow White film. It sounds like they are going for a vibe very much like the film Red Riding Hood (which stars Amanda Seyfried and is due out later this year). I’m not sure that K. Stew would be my first pick for the role. BUT she is a very in-demand actress (just yesterday we saw the first photos of Stewart in the upcoming film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s classic novel On the Road) and casting her in the film will guarantee an audience will come out to see the film from the very start. I will say that she deffo has the Snow White look so … maybe this will be a good thing? In any event, it sounds like the ball is in Kristen’s court … if she wants the role, she gets the role. BUT, what do y’all think … should she get the role?
