Could The Wolverine‘s recent setback be Snow White’s gain? Sources have confirmed to EW that Hugh Jackman has been offered the role of the huntsman in Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman. Viggo Mortensen had been in talks for the same role in the film, which has already offered the Snow White part to Kristen Stewart, with Charlize Theron long attached for the part of evil queen. (This is, of course, different from the competing Snow White project starring Julia Roberts as the evil queen, Lily Collins as the title heroine, and Armie Hammer as the strapping prince.)
