“Twilight” star Kristen Stewart is in negotiations with Universal Pictures to star in Snow White and the Huntsman. She would star in the project alongside Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron [Heat Vision | THR].
The deal is not done and could still fall apart, but both sides want it to happen.
Commercial helmer Rupert Sanders is making his directorial debut on the pic, which amps up the action quotient from the fairy tale and plays up the relationship between White and the Huntsman. In the new scenario, when she is banished and on the run by the evil queen (Theron), the Huntsman (Mortensen) takes her under his wing to protect her, and she becomes his protege, learning how to fight and defend herself.
