Taylor Lautner chatted to The Hollywood Reporter at the VMAs the other night about the two Snow White movies (one starring Kristen Stewart, and the other starring his ‘Abduction’ co–star Lily Collins).
Looks like we could see Kristen Stewart as part of another amazing movie Franchise. Snow White and the Huntsman producer Joe Roth told EW that he hopes for Snow White and the Huntsman to be the first of a trilogy!
Here are some new details Joe gave to EW:
“Producer Joe Roth tells EW that he plans on making the folktale action-adventure movie into a trilogy. “It’s meant to be the first in a series of films,” he said. “This story will end, but there will be questions remaining for these three characters.”
It’s an ambitious move by the Alice in Wonderland producer, who is in a neck-and-neck competition with a rival Snow White film starring Julia Roberts. Shooting is already underway on that movie, while Roth’s film — which stars Kristen Stewart and Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth as the title characters and Charlize Theron as her wicked royal highness — begins principal photography in August.”
Ever since it was announced that “Twilight” superstar Kristen Stewart had signed up to play yet another beloved character, Snow White, in “Snow White and the Huntsman,” her rabid fans have been eagerly anticipating news of who would play her Prince Charming.
The lucky man is British actor Sam Claflin, whom you will soon see in the upcoming blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.”
When MTV caught up with Claflin and his “Pirates” co-star Astrid Berges-Frisbey recently, we asked the young actor about working with Stewart.
“I’m very excited,” he said. “I’m a big fan of her work. I’m truly sort of flabbergasted — that’s a good word, I love that.”
“She’s lucky,” Berges-Frisbey chimed in about Claflin.
“No, I’m very lucky,” Claflin said with a smile. “Very, very lucky.”
Latest official production info on ‘Snow White and The Huntsman’ from Larry411:
STATUS: Mid-September 2011 LOCATION: London PRODUCER: Joe Roth – Palak Patel WRITER: Evan Daugherty – Hossein Amini DIRECTOR: Rupert Sanders LP: Sam Mercer CAST: Charlize Theron – Kristen Stewart – Sam Claflin ROTH FILMS FILMENGINE UNIVERSAL PICTURES Snow White (Stewart), is an incredible beautiful young woman with raven hair, fair skin, and ruby red lips. Snow White’s beauty is ultimately its own curse because, when she becomes the fairest in the land, she becomes a threat to her step-mother Ravenna (Theron).
Snow White loves Prince Charmant, a boy of the same age who she was separated from as a teen. Snow White has been forced to live under the hard rules of Ravenna 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’s driven from the castle and Eric is sent to kill her. Eric is a huntsman who is haunted by the death of his wife, Sara. 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 Sara. 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. (Chris Hemsworth mentioned for the role of Eric, The Huntsman. / Release date December 21, 2012.)
