Jackman Asked To Strap On A Cross-Bow For Snow White And The Huntsman

|

Leather pants, weaponry, an inevitable shirtless scene: Hugh Jackman’s Huntsman in the upcoming Snow White movie seems like the role he’s been practicing for his entire life. Deadline reports that Universal has offered Hugh the role in Snow White And The Huntsman alongside Kristen Stewart’s Snow White and Charlie Theron‘s wicked witch. In fact, it was only director Darren Aronofsky’s decision to leave Jackman’s The Wolverine that freed up Hugh’s schedule enough to even consider filming the fairy tale flick. What we’re trying to say is, Hugh’s already jacked and prepared to sprint through a forest topless; let’s just slap a little Robin Hood hat on his head and put him in front of a camera.

Viggo Mortensen left Snow White and the role of the Hunstman last month due to either money issues, script reviews or to be in the new Superman: Man Of Steel, depending on who you ask. As ruggedly perfect as Viggo would have been, we hope Jackman accepts the role. He can even keep the adamantium claws on, as long as he doesn’t accidentally snag them on any dwarfs.
