Chris Hemsworth Front Runner For Huntsman Role In Snow White Saga

Posted on 03 May 2011 by Christian

Deadline reports that Thor himself Chris Hemsworth is eyeing the male lead in Universal’s Snow White And The Huntsman.

Aside from a few side stories in relation to Viggo Mortenson’s rumored interest in the movie, we haven’t really been covering Universal’s upcoming take on the Snow White tale. Well that may change if Thor star Chris Hemsworth accepts the role of the huntsman..

‘Thor’ star Chris Hemsworth has emerged as a front runner to star in Snow White and the Huntsman, the Universal fairy tale that also Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart. Rupert Sanders is directing. Hemsworth’s stock is up as Thor continues to clean up overseas in anticipation of Friday’s domestic opening for the Kenneth Branagh-directed Marvel film. It isn’t clear yet whether Hemsworth will take that role. Stay tuned.

Word is that although nothing has been signed, the role is his if he wants it. Which leads to possible schedule conflicts as Joss Whedon begins shooting The Avengers. But Variety seems to feel that Universal may well work around Hemsworth’s schedule in order to secure him for the role. In this story, The Hunstsman becomes a protector/mentor to Snow White(Kristen Stewart) when the evil Queen(Charlize Theron) sends him out to the forest to kill her. Aside from that, not much is known for now.
