We haven’t heard much about Snow White and the Huntsman for awhile, but Empire just revealed a dozen new photos from the film, confirming that the project is still very much alive. Unlike Mirror Mirror, this year’s other Snow White project, this one is a complete retelling of the legend, and a decidedly darker take on the material. See for yourself.
In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) who was dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power.
The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.
The synopsis fails to mention the brilliant ensemble portraying the dwarves, which includes Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, and Bob Hoskins. Hopefully we’ll see a new trailer for this one sooner, as opposed to later.
Snow White and the Huntsman opens on June 1, 2012.
