Hugh Jackman offered the role of huntsman in 'Snow White and the Huntsman'

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.)

    Is Stewart officially signed on? I’m still holding out hope the deal falls through. I’d actually see this movie without her, especially if Hugh Jackman is in it.

      Unbelievably, there’s two different versions in the works. She is Snow White in the other one.

      • ILoveZacLevi

        no Chelsea’s right. Hugh Jackman is in the alleged Stewart one.

    • Dave

      I agree, Chelsea. I hope Kristen Stewart is not officially signed on because I would see this movie without her. I mean, in what universe would the gorgeous Charlize Theron be jealous of Kristen Stewart? They would need to make Charlize look as ugly as she did in the movie Monster to make the jealousy believable.

      I feel exactly the same Chelsea.

    Stewart-So wrong.

    • MM

      So very much agree!

  • aew

    Don’t you people have anything better to do than criticize Kristen Stewart every time EW posts an article that she’s mentioned in??? Wow. Get a life!

    • Ruby

      Nah, there’s just A LOT of different people who don’t like her.

    • Erin

      We’re not technically criticizing her, we’re criticizing the casting. Which sucks.

    Offered? But did he take it?
    Hugh Jackman is great, but he hasn’t been getting a lot of meaty roles, so he probably has no choice but to take it. However, the other one still has my number one interest at the moment.

    • Ella

      Wrong. He gets offers but because he is also often attached to Broadway or has promoting duties, he faces scheduling conflicts.

  • Nicole

    Jackman- SWEET!
    Stewart- what universe do we live in that offers a role to girl that’s exactly like a robot? what happened to talent? Just totaly disgusted.
    in what universe would Theron be jealous of Stewart? This movie will most likely get the Razzie for worst film made. A total bomb!!! I so agree with Chealsea and the others who wish for a new snow white.

  • PNK

    yay! good news.

  • Caro

    Would love a Hugh Jackman-Kristen Stewart-Charlize combibation.

  • Michelle

    My question is why do we need two (three, if you count the TV one) version of Snow White at the same time? (Plus Theron being jealous of KStew? Not bloody likely!)

  • bluebird

    i really like KRISTEN STEWART!
    she’s perfect for the role!
    working with Chalize Theron and Hugh Jackman!? wow! box office hit!
