Everything we’ve seen from the film so far, including an awesome first trailer, has been really impressive, and it looks like an impeccable directorial debut from Rupert Sanders. The script was co-written by Evan Daugherty (making his feature debut too) and the Oscar-nominated Hossein Amini, who wrote the screenplay for Drive last year, so it’s definitely got some serious potential.
“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.”
Along with Stewart and Theron, we can look forward to seeing Chris Hemsworth take on the role of the Huntsman, with a supporting cast that includes Sam Claflin, Nick Frost, Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan (who is currently in everything at the moment), Lily Cole, and Bob Hoskins.
The film will be with us on 1st June, and looks set to be a brilliant way to kick off the summer. You can catch up on all our coverage for the film so far here, and as usual with this new image, you can click to enlarge.
