Now if you are wondering which movie I’m talking about, it is the one starring Kristen Stewart. Stewart will be playing the titular princess, Charlize Theron has been attached for months as the Evil Queen, and it was reported back in May that Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides star Sam Claflin would be playing a prince.
Now announced via Twitter, the British Noah Huntley will be part of the fairy tale world as King Magnus in Snow White and the Huntsman. Medieval roles are not new to Huntley. Earlier this year we saw him as the Head Knight in David Gordon Green’s Your Highness.
Snow White and the Huntsman is a twist on the classic Grimm fairy tale written by Hossein Amini, Evan Daugherty, and Evan Spiliotopoulos where the story follows the queen ordering the Huntsman to take Snow White into the woods to murder her, but he has a change of heart and instead decides to train her so that she can both protect herself and take vengeance against the queen.
The cast also includes Nick Frost, Toby Jones, Ian McShane, Ray Winstone, Bob Hoskins, Eddie Marsan, and Eddie Izzard.
