Chris Hemsworth attached to SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN

From God of thunder to fairy tale huntsman, Chris Hemsworth is becoming one of the hottest names in the acting world.

With THOR set to send him directly to the A-list later this week, Variety is reporting that Hemsworth is now attached to the role of the Hunstman, in the upcoming film, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN.

Previously attached to names like Viggo Mortensen and Hugh Jackman, the role would see Hemsworth starring opposite Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart in the Rupert Sanders helmed Universal project.  The film will tell the story of the relationship between the two titular characters, who must team up to defeat the evil queen, after the latter is sent to kill the former.

With Hemsworth grabbing really good reviews for his turn in THOR, this likely won’t be the last role for the actor, who is currently in production on his return to the role of the Norse God in the upcoming AVENGERS film.  This project has been gestating for quite some time now, but with Hemsworth attached, it should, barring another casting switch, be ready to move forward quite soon.

The film will be hitting on December 21, 2012.

About Joshua Brunsting

Born in the tiny Michigan city known as Holland, and raised in the even smaller city known as Saugatuck, I have been a film geek for the majority of my life, and have known film was my passion ever since the final frame of THE LION KING. I’m a romantic with a thing for 60’s pop music (preferably French), John Keats poems, and an even bigger thing for film noir. Currently a Journalism Major at Grand Valley State University, I am using my love of film, and my deathly, ninja-like, skill behind the keyboard to slowly take over the world. When I’m not writing about or watching film, I’m listening to music, particularly from the likes of TV on the Radio, Best Coast, and Semi Precious Weapons. I play the ukulele, and I also have a deep and intense love for Gustavo Santaolalla and Ennio Morricone, but then again, who doesn’t. I was drum major for my high school marching band for two years, I’m one of the four people who actually watched Dollhouse, and my favorite film of all time is Godard’s BREATHLESS. I’m a wannabe screenwriter, a wild thing, a nerd, a geek, and most importantly, I’m a lover of film. Oh, and I want to be Captain Planet when I grow up.
