You gotta give it up to Universal. While their Snow White film will come in second to whatever Tarsem is currently cooking up, they've gone ahead with a batch of genius casting that vaults "Snow White And The Huntsman" right ahead of the competition. With Ian McShane, Eddie Izzard, Toby Jones, Bob Hoskins, Eddie Marsan and Stephen Graham all set to board, the Rupert Sanders film has gone ahead and found one more amazing Brit character actor which pretty much puts every one of our favorite Blighty thespians in one movie. Nice move.

You gotta give it up to Universal. While their Snow White film will come in second to whatever Tarsem is currently cooking up, they've gone ahead with a batch of genius casting that vaults "Snow White And The Huntsman" right ahead of the competition. With Ian McShane, Eddie Izzard, Toby Jones, Bob Hoskins, Eddie Marsan and Stephen Graham all set to board, the Rupert Sanders film has gone ahead and found one more amazing Brit character actor which pretty much puts every one of our favorite Blighty thespians in one movie. Nice move.

THR reports that the awesome Ray Winstone rounds out the casting of the dwarves in the film. Amazing. In the early draft of the script we read, the dwarves are described as “barbarian warriors” rather than the miners of Disney tradition. With McShane set to play Caesar, Izzard will be Tiberius, the biggest of the lot, Hoskins will play Constantine, the oldest, blind dwarf, and the omnipresent Jones, will be Claudius, the most timid. Meanwhile, Graham will play the angry Nero, with Marsan and Winston to play the twins Hadrian and Trajan.

The seven thesps join Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Sam Clafin in a retelling of the classic fairy tale in which the woodsman (Hemsworth), who is meant to bump off the titular princess (Stewart), winds up training her instead to fight her evil stepmother (Theron). The film will be directed by Rupert Sanders and will go in front of cameras in Europe later this year, with a June 1, 2012 release date scheduled.
