Kristen Stewart: fairy tale princess?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kristen Stewart is in talks to play Snow White in the upcoming dramatic re-imagining of the fairy tale, 'Snow White and the Huntsman.' The mercurial Stewart knows the role of beautiful girl in distress well, having starred as the star-crossed vampire lover Bella Swan in the smash hit 'Twilight Saga' films.
And while she wouldn't be paired with a century old vampire, if Stewart takes the role, she'll have an actual older man as her protector: Viggo Mortensen is in talks to play the role of the Huntsman, a character who is charged with finding and capturing Snow White, but ends up mentoring and training her.
Stewart will also have to face another evil queen, to be played by Charlize Theron, who was cast earlier in January.
If Stewart is cast, it'll represent a second change of heart of sorts for the film's producers -- originally, they considered big names such as Stewart for the role, then turned their sites on unknown actresses, before apparently coming to their financial senses and heading back to the big names.
