There are two ways through life, the way of nature and the way of grace. Or in Hollywood terms, there are two ways to release a movie: rushed on a tight schedule, or finely tuned with a more realistic production. The battle between Relativity and Universal over their respective Snow White films has been ugly, with the former trumping the latter by moving their Tarsem-directed film all the way up to a March 16, 2012 release date -- nine months from now and no, it hasn't started shooting yet. Universal's "Snow White And The Huntsman" is currently set just under a year away on June 1, 2012, with a comparably luxurious year to get it on screens. And it looks like they're going to use that time wisely.

Judd Apatow's 'Knocked Up' Spin-Off Now Set For December 21st, 2012 Every so often, Hollywood studios find themselves in a game of $300 million chicken, when two films with strikingly similar premises are green-lit simultaneously. And almost invariably, the first film out of the blocks ends up as the more successful: "Capote" landed a full year before the identically-plotted "Infamous," and despite a less starry cast walked away with more awards and a bigger haul, while "Dante's Peak" outgrossed the similarly lava-themed "Volcano" by over $50 million.

We Hear He Used A Felt-Tip Pen Sign His Contract Update: "Thor" has grossed a whopping $283 million worldwide. Chris Hemsworth was smart enough to wait and see if the picture was a hit before he signed on for "Snow White and the Huntsman" because he had already been in talks before the movie opened. Now, as you suspected, he's got the gig.

Try as they might, Rupert Sanders and Universal just can't seem to lock down a lead for "Snow White and the Huntsman." Top shelf guys like Viggo Mortensen and Hugh Jackman have passed, while on-the-rise folks like Joel Edgerton have been mentioned to join Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron in the film. They seem to be vacillating between a name brand and a fresher face, and it looks like they hope to get the best out of both worlds with their latest choice.

Studio Eyes James McAvoy Or Shia LaBeouf But May Want Aussie Actor For 'Snow White & The Huntsman'Aussie actor Joel Edgerton is on the cusp of making a major mark in Hollywood. The 36-year-old actor has never been lacking for work. Acclaimed turns in "The Square" and "Animal Kingdom" put him firmly on the Hollywood radar and 2011 is already shaping up to be a helluva year as he's already set for the Tom Hardy MMA flick "Warrior" and the big budget "The Thing" prequel. He's also currently filming the indie flick "The Odd Life of Timothy Green." All that's left for the actor to solidify his place among the top leading men is a franchise, and it looks like he's got a couple to choose from.

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.

It was bound to happen, and we're surprised it didn't happen sooner. But with "The Wolverine" now on hold thanks to the double whammy of Darren Aronofsky bailing on the film and the ongoing aftereffects of the devastating earthquake in Japan where the film was set to shoot, Universal are hoping they can take advantage of Hugh Jackman's downtime and get him to star in their developing Snow White movie.

We're kind of loving Viggo Mortensen at the moment. Despite coming to career ascension with "The Lord Of The Rings" films, the 52-year-old actor always seemed uncomfortable in tentpoles and super-budgeted films, instead choosing to use his post-'LOTR' fame to carefully attach himself to more interesting and thoughtful work like his trio of David Croneberg films ("A History of Violence," "Eastern Promises" and the upcoming "A Dangerous Method"), John Hillcoat's "The Road" and forthcoming Walter Salles adaptation of "On The Road."

First, she loomed large as a potential lead” and last month was "in negotations." Now it's pretty much crossing the finish line as Deadline reports that producer Palek Patel has tweeted that Kristen Stewart is now in "final negotiations" to join "Snow White and the Huntsman." So yeah, at this point, she's in the damn film.
