"Snow White" Starts @ Pinewood UK

Production has now started @ Pinewood Studios, UK on the Universal feature " Snow White and the Huntsman", with crew constructing sets on the Studio's stages and backlot.

The fantasy feature stars Kristen Stewart ("The Twilight Saga") as 'Snow White', Charlize Theron ("Monster") as the 'Queen', Chris Hemsworth ("Thor") as the 'Huntsman' and Sam Claflin as the 'Prince'.

Directed by Rupert Sanders and written by Evan Daugherty, the film is the first of a planned trilogy, inspired by Grimm fairy tales.

"...'Snow White' (Stewart) loves ' Prince Charmant' (Sam Claflin), but they were separated as teens, with Snow White forced to live under the hard rules of 'Ravenna' (Theron).

When Ravenna discovers that Snow White is about to become 'the fairest', Snow White is driven from the castle and' Eric The Huntsman' (Hemsworth), is ordered to kill her...".

The casting of 'The 7 Dwarves' is amusing, with CGI head-grafting onto 'little' bodies 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'.

"We're delighted to be hosting Universal once again for its latest project, 'Snow White and the Hunstman'," said Andrew Smith, Group Corporate Affairs Director, Pinewood.

"The sets and costumes look fantastic..."

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