Things aren't in a good place right now for Universal's "Snow White And The Huntsman." Their competitors over at Relativity already have Julia Roberts and Lily Collins ready to go in the Tarsem directed Snow White movie that's going to hit theaters on June 29, 2012—six months before Universal's entry. With Viggo Mortensen already having moved on, last week it was reported that the studio was talking to the now available Hugh Jackman to take on the part, but it appears those efforts have gone unrewarded.

Things aren't in a good place right now for Universal's "Snow White And The Huntsman." Their competitors over at Relativity already have Julia Roberts and Lily Collins ready to go in the Tarsem directed Snow White movie that's going to hit theaters on June 29, 2012—six months before Universal's entry. With Viggo Mortensen already having moved on, last week it was reported that the studio was talking to the now available Hugh Jackman to take on the part, but it appears those efforts have gone unrewarded.

The Wrap reports that negotiations between the actor and the studio have ended, leaving the picture, that currently has Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron attached, still without a Huntsman. However, they're plugging away hoping to fill that role as the August start date is looming with a December 21, 2012 release date on the horizon -- but they'll need a big name to get audiences to care about two Snow White movies in one year. But that's not the only project to lose a big name recently.

Director Adam Shankman was courting Amy Adams for a part in "Rock Of Ages," his upcoming big-haired '80s musical thing, but alas, Deadline reports her commitments to playing Lois Lane in Zack Snyder's "Superman" won't leave her schedule any breathing room. But can we just ask that he finish casting his movie already instead of talking and tweeting about it every five seconds? Ok, thanks.
