Who’s going to be the fairest of them all in 2012? We’ll soon see, but the battle of Snow White movies is gearing up. In one corner, you have Tarsem’s upcoming “Mirror Mirror” a comedy/adventure take on the fairy tale with Lily Collins, Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer. In the other, you have Rupert Sanders‘ much more dramatic and straight-faced “Snow White And The Huntsman.” So who are you rooting for?
Well, ‘Huntsman’ is hoping to sway your vote with a brand new banner that gives a nice sense of the tone for which the picture will strive. In the Black-List-approved script, the story offers up a new twist on the familiar tale with our hero Snow White (Kristen Stewart) set to be killed by the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) on the command of her mother, the evil Queen (Charlize Theron). Instead, he winds up protecting and teaming with Snow White so they can take out her Mom together. Damn. The seven dwarves are rounded by a raft of Brit talent including Nick Frost, Bob Hoskins, Eddie Marsan, Stephen Graham and more, so that certainly offers up some tremendous promise.
