Viggo Mortensen Checking out SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN
Earlier in the week, it was reported that the lead role in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus had gone to Michael Fassbender after Viggo Mortensen, who was also being considered, had passed on the movie – because he is currently in talks to star in another movie. That would be SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, Universal’s action-adventure film slated to hit theatres December 21, 2012.
The film will be directed by Rupert Sanders, and based on the classic fairy tale. The Lord of the Rings star would play the Huntsman, a character that is supposed to kill Snow White, but instead ends up protecting her. Charlize Theron is reportedly in negotiations for the evil queen. No additional casting has been confirmed for the role of Snow White, though Kristen Stewart’s name has been tossed around the rumor mill.
As someone who is a self-proclaimed huge fan of Viggo Mortensen, I think he could pull of this role extremely well. What about you? And you do have any casting ideas for Snow White?
