In early February we learned that Twilight star Kristen Stewart was up for the lead role as Snow White in a planned live action movie version of the classic fairytale. Today we learn from one of the film’s producers that Kristen has, indeed, won the role of Snow White and will begin filming the movie Snow White & The Huntsman in late Summer.
@kstewartnews We start shooting Snow White & The Huntsman on August 1st in London, Scotland, & Germany!!
As I said before, the decision to play Snow White was really up to K. Stew … the producers wanted her for the role (obvs because she comes complete with a built in and very rabid fanbase) so it was up to her to say yes or no to the role. I’m not sure how I feel about Kristen playing Snow White but I think it is deffo a smart move on her part to play the role. Now … all we have left to do is wait and see if Channing Tatum will really play the part of Peter Pan in another fairytale adapted film. I’m starting to see a pattern forming. It looks like fairytales are quickly becoming the new vampire films. As for Kristen’s casting … do you approve?
