Sean Bean To Bring Awesomeness To Untitled 'Snow White' Project

The Playlist By Gabe Toro | The Playlist July 16, 2011 at 2:05AM

"Snow White and the Huntsmen" seems to have all the buzz, adding multiple actors as the dwarves in separate announcements over the past few days. By increasing the film's pre-production profile, the picture vaulted over the surprisingly buzzless untitled "Snow White" film currently shooting under director Tarsem Singh, and slated for a release almost three months earlier. While the film boasts Julia Roberts as the wicked queen menacing Lily Collins as our heroine, Armie Hammer as the dashing Prince Alcott and Nathan Lane as the oh god stop right there you're sold on Lane. Fortunately, it does appear that the Singh project will have that extra shot of awesomeness that 'Huntsman' cannot boast.

"Snow White and the Huntsmen" seems to have all the buzz, adding multiple actors as the dwarves in separate announcements over the past few days.

Fortunately, it does appear that the Singh project will have that extra shot of awesomeness that 'Huntsman' cannot boast.

The Hollywood Reporter announced that Sean Bean, who sneezes off knife fights in his spare time, is set to star as Snow White's father, the King who tragically experiences the destruction of his kingdom at the hands of Roberts' nefarious queen. While this does seem like yet another fateful role for one of the most constantly murdered actors in film history, this is considered to be a more family-friendly approach. So, Bean may only behead a couple of fools.

"Snow White" sees release on March 16th, while "Snow White and the Huntsman" is slated for June 1st. There's also "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" on March 2nd, along with a gaggle of superhero movies over the very same few months, a "Twilight" and a "G.I. Joe" and literally no reasons for actual adults to go to the cinemas anymore.
