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 Whiteand 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.
Saoirse Ronan is apparently thisclose to landing the role of Snow White in the film The Brothers Grimm: Snow White.Armie Hammer (love him) and Julia Robertsare set to co-star as the Prince and Evil Queen, respectively. The Oscar-nominated Saoirse is one of the biggest of the big right now – she was considered for The Hunger Games and is also in talks to star in The Hobbit. Did we mention her new movie Hanna opens next month? Fire, she is on you.
This puts Ronan in direct competition with another in-demand young actress,Kristen Stewart, who is starring as Snow White in Snow White and the Huntsman. Charlize Theron is attached to play the Evil Queen, while the search continues for the Huntsman after Viggo Mortensen left the project this week. As if that wasn’t enough Snow White movies, there’s a third in the works – Snow and the Seven.
We’re fans of both Saoirse and Kristen – they’re uber-talented, humble, articulate and dedicated to their craft. In fact, we think BOTH of them will not just pull off the role of Snow White, but completely nail it. Do you have a favorite? Vote in our poll below.
