& Angelina Jolie have both been linked with Rupert Sander's Snow White and the HuntsmanTom Hardy which is just one of three competing Snow White “re-imaginings” in development right now. Now Charlize Theron reportedly is set to join the fold.
This dark re-telling is being scripted by Evan Daugherty. According to The Playlist, Tom Hardy has already been negotiating to take the role of the Huntsman. In Daugherty’s version of the story, this is a character charged by the evil queen to find and kill Snow White but, instead, he decides to go on the run with her and aid her escape. Hardy will apparently jump to the project after completing the currently-shooting This Means War and before adopting his mystery role in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises.
We’re also told that Angelina Jolie is to play Ravenna, the evil queen and villain of the piece… our source was a little uncertain on whether it’ll become a reality. And it seems they were right to be uncertain. JustJared.com have now made a claim that the role has gone to Charlize Theron. Simply:
Sources tell JustJared that the 35-year-old actress will play the evil queen in the new adaptation of the classic tale, Snow White. Theron is currently shooting Jason Reitman’s Young Adult, and it seems she’d roll right over into this one. If Theron gets involved joins she will be teaming up with Hardy twice after her casting in Mad Max:Fury Road as an amputee.
