'The Huntsman' Adds Rob Brydon & Two Female Dwarves This Time
The cast of The Huntsman, the prequel to the 2012 fantasy Snow White and the Huntsman, already has a solid cast. Chris Hemsworth is reprising his title role, with Charlize Theron back as Ravenna and newcomers Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain coming aboard. And while all the dwarves from the first film aren't back, Nick Frost is at least back as Nion. Now some more dwarves are entering the mix as THR reports The Trip star Rob Brydon, Quartet actress Sheridan Smith and The Iron Lady supporting star Alexandra Roach have all taken roles as the gruff ensemble of dwarves this time. Yeah, there's some female dwarves!
As of now, there aren't a lot of specifics on the story, but the prequel takes place before Snow White ever crosses paths with Ravenna and will follow the huntsman Eric as he is sent on a quest to find the stolen magic mirror, which puts him on a path to face something from his past, in addition to the evil Snow Queen (Blunt), the sister of Ravenna (Theron). No word on how the dwarves will come into play this time around, but we'll find out sometime down the road. Cedric Nicolas-Troyan will make his directorial debut on the film with a script from Frank Darabont most recently, and the film arrives on April 22nd, 2016.
