Kristen Stewart: 'Snow White' with Viggo Mortensen, Charlize Theron?
The "Twilight" star is reportedly on a short list of hot young actresses being considered for the darker adaptation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale.
"Persistent" rumors say Stewart could take the lead, Deadline Hollywood reports, in the classic story of a young princess targeted by an evil queen.
Mortensen's part isn't specified, but could presumably be the burly huntsman the title suggests, while Theron will take the post of evil queen -- the mirror-consulting villain obsessed with being fairest of them all. A leaked copy of the script confirms that all of the original characters are in play, even the dwarfs (one's name is Gus!).
The casting would carry Stewart out of her vampire franchise, but fear not -- the "Snow White" script sees men turning into wolves. Familiar territory for the actress, no?
