“The Tourist” co-stars Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, and “Mad Max: Fury Road” co-stars Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron are all playing a game of musical chairs in regards to the upcoming revisionist fairy tale “Snow White and the Huntsman” for Universal Pictures.
Earlier this week Tom Hardy was rumoured to be in negotiations to play the titular Huntsman with Angelina Jolie interested in the role of the evil queen Ravenna who puts a bounty on the head of Snow White (as yet uncast).
Then on Thursday, The Wrap reported that Johnny Depp was being offered the lead role as Hardy has opted out to focus on his role in “The Dark Knight Rises” instead when it begins production in April.
Shortly after, Just Jared reported that Jolie had passed on the project and Charlize Theron is rumoured to be under consideration for the evil queen role.
Whatever the case production is geared up to begin in January.
