The negotiations on who will star opposite Kristen Stewart in 'Snow White and the Huntsman' have been on and off since there have been no leading man to play the second character in the film by Universal.
The film will be directed by Rupert Sanders and it also features Charlize Theron as the evil queen and Sam Claflin as K-Stew’s love interest. Claflin who plays the prince in Snow White has also appeared in the new 'Pirates of the Caribbean'.
‘Snow White’ is a centuries-old fairy tale about a huntsman ordered to kill Snow White in the woods. But instead of taking her life as asked, the huntsman gave her another chance for life and the two escaped together.
The movie is set to be released on December 21, 2012 and as reported earlier by IBTimes, the film is expected to have a dogfight battle in theaters against the ‘Snow White’ version of Relativity Media set to hit theaters in June 2012.
