Kristen Stewart Confirmed to Lead 'Snow White and the Huntsman'
Back in January we heard Universal's developing fairytale re-telling of Snow White and the Huntsman had two frontrunners for the titular lead female role to join Viggo Mortensen as the huntsman and Charlize Theron as the evil queen. Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) and Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga) were said to be in contention for the part with many sources saying the job would go to the latter. Well, producer Palak Patel tweeted last week (via MTV) that, ""[Kristen Stewart] is officially playing Snow White and her deal is in final negotiations and will close next week." So I guess this is pretty much official now.
Patel apparently followed up by saying, "Official confirmation coming next week," Patel tweeted shortly after. "But we are in final negotiations." Of course this update has also since been removed, but screenshots have already been saved of both status updates. Though I was hoping the role would go to Browning, obviously Universal wants to reel in all of those Twilight fangirls who will follow Stewart from sparkling vampire tales to indies like The Runaways and Welcome to the Rileys. We'll see how this turns out soon enough. What do you think?
