If being offered the lead role in "Snow White And The Huntsman" didn't tip you off, Tom Hardy is one of the hottest talents in Hollywood right now. His turn in "Inception" made it known to a wider audience what those who saw "Bronson" already knew; the actor is the real deal and has the charisma and skill to be a major leading man. So, no surprise then that with 'Huntsman' now trying to land Johnny Depp to lead the film, Hardy has been offered the role of Henry Sturgess in another tentpole vehicle, "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter."

Tom Hardy Will Be Too Busy Being Awesome In 'The Dark Knight Rises'It speaks to how far Tom Hardy has come that his name was in the early mix for the lead in Universal's "The Snow White And The Huntsman," but the timing always seemed a little too close for comfort. The actor will be shooting "This Means War" until December and then will begin work on Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" in the spring. Alas, we'll have to wait a while yet for Hardy to land his own franchise vehicle. However, undaunted, Universal has put an offer to the biggest A-list star there is.

After months and months of speculation, some firm information on the third Batman finally appeared yesterday, courtesy of director Christopher Nolan. It'll be called "The Dark Knight Rises," and it won't be in 3D. Plus, a little while ago, we discovered that actor Tom Hardy will be joining the cast of the film in a role that most assume to be villainous in nature. But Nolan also debunked something that many had believed to be a certainty: that one of the classics in the Batman rogue's gallery, The Riddler (previously played by Jim Carrey in "Batman Forever"), would be the villain in the picture.

Just a couple of days after we learned Tom Hardy was circling "Snow White And The Huntsman," a bit more potential casting news is trickling forth. While Angelina Jolie was also being courted to join the film, which looks to start shooting in early '11 under neophyte director Rupert Sanders, it seemed more like a longshot studio wish given that the actress is right in the midst of shooting her directorial debut and would most likely be in post-production at that time.

Studio Wants Angelina Jolie For The Villain We reported only a week or so back that, amidst the leagues of fairytale-inspired projects put into development on the back of the billion-dollar success of this year's "Alice in Wonderland," there were not one, not two, but three competing projects on the horizon that focused on the classic story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Disney have the long-gestating "Snow and the Seven," a kung-fu epic which sees the dwarves replaced with Shaolin monks, and Relativity are developing "The Brothers Grimm: Snow White," which Tarsem Singh and Jean-Pierre Jeunet have been linked to.
