"Snow White And The Huntsman"- June 1, 2012

Universal has released the first images from the upcoming fantasy feature "Snow White and the Huntsman", starring Kristen Stewart as 'Snow White', Charlize Theron as the 'Queen', Chris Hemsworth as the 'Huntsman' and Sam Claflin as the 'Prince'.

Directed by Rupert Sanders and written by Evan Daugherty, the film is currently in pre-production and is the first of a planned trilogy, inspired by the Grimm's fairy tale "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" :

"...'Snow White' (Stewart) loves ' Prince Charmant' (Sam Claflin), a boy of the same age as her and from whom she was separated as a teen. Snow White has been forced to live under the hard rules of 'Ravenna' (Theron), where her only friends were the animals that would come to see her.

"Snow White's life is turned upside down when Ravenna discovers that Snow White is about to become 'the fairest'. She is driven from the castle and' Eric' (Hemsworth), the huntsman, is sent to kill her. He is haunted by the death of his wife, 'Sara', with whom he was deeply in love and cannot silence the pain caused by her loss.

"He drinks heavily and spends his days hunting for the 'White Wolf' that killed her. He is purely mercenary, taking the money Ravenna offers to bring the most beautiful maidens in the land to the castle. However, when Eric discovers that the White Wolf works for Ravenna, he escapes with Snow White to the 'Dark Forest' and begins preparing to get his revenge..."

The casting of 'The Dwarves is amusing, with CGI grafting for Ian McShane as 'Caesar', Eddie Izzard as 'Tiberius', Bob Hoskins as' Constantine', Toby Jones as 'Claudius', Eddie Marsan as 'Hadrian', Stephen Graham as 'Nero' and Ray Winstone as 'Trajan'.

"Snow White and The Huntsman", will be released June 1, 2012.
