Hugh Jackman Wanted For “Snow White”

With “The Wolverine” film shoot seemingly delayed by at least a few months, Universal Pictures has seized the opportunity and offered Hugh Jackman the huntsman role in “Snow White and the Huntsman” says Deadline.

Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron are already set to star in the Rupert Sanders-directed project which Hossein Amini is tipped to do some script work on before production begins mid-September.

Viggo Mortensen was previously attached to the role but left the project due to reasons that differ depending upon whose publicist you believe.

Meanwhile David Slade (“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”) and Duncan Jones (“Source Code”) have been mentioned as potential replacements for Aronofsky on “The Wolverine” when that project gets underway again.
