Emily Browning Has Also Tested For Snow White Role



Update: Deadline reports that Kristen Stewart "looms large as a potential lead" in the role of Snow White in "Snow White And The Huntsman." But nothing is quite certain as Emily Browning -- set to appear in Zack Snyder's forthcoming "Sucker Punch" -- tested for the role last week, according to THR.

That was fast. Michael Fassbender is officially out of Universal's hotly-tipped "Snow White and the Huntsman" (he took Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" instead) and evidently a replacement has already been found. Viggo Mortensen is reportedly in talks to join in the fantasy re-imagining that newcomer Rupert Sanders is helming. Notice that Charlize Theron is only mentioned to be in talks in Variety's report, because, as we've been saying for weeks now, she's not officially locked in like many have assumed (and like Fassbender, she may take a "Prometheus" role which would likely see her exit the project as well).

Written by Evan Daugherty, the script was high up on the 2010 Blacklist pages, and this new spin on the popular fairy tale sees the titular huntsman (Mortensen) being hired by the evil queen (Theron, if she decides to take the role) to track down her runaway stepdaughter, the fairest in all the land. When he realizes that the queen intends to kill Snow White, he helps her escape, and the pair go on the run. Apparently, the huntsman and Snow White will be chained together for a good portion of the film, and there is still a handsome prince who will win the fair lady’s heart.

Actresses such as Riley Keough, Felicity Jones (who now has Sundance buzz from the hit indie "Like Crazy" -- it was bought by Paramount), Bella Heathcoat and Alicia Vikander are all up-and-coming actresses that have reportedly been up for the role, but no one has officially nabbed the part yet. "Snow White and the Huntsman" already has a Dec. 21, 2012 release date and is aiming to shoot this summer. Theron and Mortensen co-starred together briefly in "The Road" in 2009.
