Kristen Stewart up for role of ‘Snow White’?
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Kristen Stewart is on a short list of actors being considered for the role of Snow White in an upcoming live action adaptation of the classic fairy tale. If the rumors are true, this would re-team Kristen with her On the Road co-star Viggo Mortenson.
The Twilight star is on the list for the role of Snow White in Universalâ€™sÂ Snow White and the Huntsman.
The movie, being directed by Rupert Sanders, is in deep casting mode, with Viggo Mortensen entering negotiations to play the Huntsman earlier Wednesday. Charlize Theron is in negotiations to play the evil queen.
Stewart is a name that Universal has kept coming back to since acquiring the project even as it went through a series of screen tests with actresses such as Riley Keough, Felicity Jones and Alicia Vikander. Emily Browning tested this past weekend (Stewart has reached a point in her career where testing isn’t required).
Stewart, arguably one of the biggest stars in the world thanks to the Twilight movies, has focused on indie projects in between the vampire romancers, and this could become her first studio project since becoming a name. It also would put her in the shoes of an iconic character.
