Hold up, Emily Browning! Is Kristen Stewart also up for the title role in Snow White and the Huntsman?

01.27.2011

SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN has been getting a lot of attention these days! Just a few hours ago, we reported that Viggo Mortensen (A DANGEROUS METHOD) was entering negotiations to play the titular Huntsman in the Universal fairy tale. It was also stated that SUCKER PUNCH babe Emily Browning was up for the role of Snow White itself. But now, Deadline is saying that TWILIGHT's Kristen Stewart is rumored to be "looming large" as the film's potential lead.

THR's Heat Vision adds that Universal has continually been going back to the idea of casting Stewart ever since they acquired the project in the first place. This is despite the fact that they've already tested a handful of (relatively unknown) actresses such as Riley Keough, Felicity Jones, and Alicia Vikander. Browning is the latest to have tested according to them. My guess is that they'd probably like to bring in a bigger female name to attract a wider audience, and Stewart would do just that. Browning could blow up, though, should Zack Synder's SUCKER PUNCH strike a chord with audiences beyond just movie geeks.

As a refresher, the film's story centers around the Huntsman who's ordered to take Snow White into the woods and kill her, but instead escapes with her, becomes her mentor, and teaches her how to fight.

SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN - from writer Evan Daugherty and director Rupert Sanders - is currently set for release on December 21, 2012.

Frak this shtuff.

Kristen Stewart can't act her way out of a wet paper bag with holes in it.

Watch every movie she's made and you'll see that she's exactly the same in every one of them.

Ms. Browning, on the other hand, has had earnest potential since LEMONY SNICKET'S SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS.

I like Stewart and this she would make for a good Snow White. I don't know if she would be the best choice, but definitely a good choice.

So maybe people think she's hot (I don't see it). Or maybe they think she's a decent actress (I definitely don't see it).

Besides "Adventureland", where it helped that she wasn't the center of attention, she's really got the range of a nerf gun. Her responses to everything are so dry and dulled down OR way too over-the-top that it's getting to where I can't even keep up with how much I don't like her.

I'm being insensitive, sure. But there are so many better actresses out there.

I don't think she's just hot. She's fucking gorgeous. And she's a phenomenal actress. I don't like the Twilight movies but she's had so much better material to work with in movies like The Runaways, Welcome to the Rileys, Adventureland, The Yellow Handkerchief, The Cake Eaters, etc, and she's been excellent in all of those movies.

Maybe it's just me, then. She just doesn't do it for me.

I'm fine with either, really. I like Stewart more and I think she is the better actress, but Browning wasn't bad in The Uninvited. I'll probably see it either way, because Viggo usually doesn't sign up for crap films.

Kristen Stewart is one of my top five favorite actresses. If she's in this I would definitely watch it. However, Hollywood movies these days aren't impressing me. For instance, her indie movies give her a lot more to work with than the Twilight series. She was excellent in The Runaways and Welcome to the Rileys.

Alicia Vikander

Stewart can be good. Outside of the Twilight series she's had her moments, but for this part I think she's all wrong.

Personally I'd like to see Alicia VIkander in the role. Think she'd be perfect. Really talanted actress and just looks the part as how I imagine Snow White in this.

Noooo.

I don't have much against Stewart, although Twilight sucks, but I think she is so wrong for the role. Emily on the other hand is perfect. She has the rosy cheeked innocence the role probably requires. And she's beautiful too.
