Viggo is a no-go for Snow, Mortensen won't be a Huntsman

03.25.2011

Kristen Stewart will need a new mentor when she shows up as Snow White in Universal's big fairy tale SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN.

Viggo Mortensen had long been in talks to play the Huntsman, who in this version of the Grimm fairy tale takes in the banished Snow and teaches her to fight. But now the negotiations have reportedly fallen apart, leaving the project again in search of an appropriate action father figure.

The fantasy adventure (not to be confused with Relativity's competing 3D variation THE BROTHERS GRIMM: SNOW WHITE) has Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen, and comes from writer Evan Daugherty and commercial director Rupert Sanders. The project had previously gone after Tom Hardy, Johnny Depp and Michael Fassbender for the Huntsman role.

So now that The Vig may have an opening on his schedule, could he possibly be reconsidered for the role of Zod in the new SUPERMAN (despite it being refuted by director Zack Snyder)? Or with Javier Bardem still not officially on board THE DARK TOWER, could fan fave Viggo strap on the sixguns as Roland Deschain?

Kinda relieved actually.

I get the feeling this would be another attempt to Twilight-ify another fantasy, ala Red Riding Hood.His presence would end up being like Gary Oldman in Red Riding Hood. Wasted.

And so goes my excitement about this project. Viggo Mortensen is may be my favorite actor working. Every time I see him I completely believe he's the character he's playing. I can't say that about most actors, who develop a persona that fits every situation as needed.

But without him I can't believe Kristen Stewart is truly fairer than Charlize Theron. Younger, yes. But unless Charlize goes all Aileen Wuornos again, she's still the fairest of those two.

Thank You

Absolutely can't stand the no talent Kristen Stewart and to put someone like Viggo in a movie with her would be a waste no matter what. Really hope they consider him instead for The Dark Tower series...he'd be the perfect Roland, Javier just doesn't fit that character.

No Viggo = no interest

and yes, I could see an appearance from Aragorn in one or both of The Hobbit movies. That would please me.

Good.

Now he can play Roland. Javier is way too fat to play him anyway.

Since Liam Neeson seem to get every mentor role out there when it comes to Hollywood, I wouldn't be surprised if he got the part.

I'm honestly kind of glad. After not so much RED RIDING HOOD as after frickin' BROTHERS GRIMM, I'm a little weary of "classic myth" retellings.

That said, I'm glad to hear Viggo is not letting himself get typecast just yet, and more so...

...here's back to hoping! VIGGO = ROLAND!!!
