Jolie, Hardy To Team For “Huntsman”?

Tom Hardy (“Inception,” “Bronson”) is nearing a deal to star in “Snow White and the Huntsman” for Relativity Media reports The Playlist.

Scribe Evan Daugherty, director Rupert Sanders and producer Joe Roth are all attached to this version which expands the role of the Huntsman in the fairy tale.

Ordered to take the evil Queen’s stepdaughter Snow White into the woods and kill her, Eric instead lets her go and becomes something of a mentor who teaches her how to fight and survive.

Angelina Jolie is being sought to portray Ravenna, the evil queen and is reportedly interested in the project. However it is unclear if she will be available.

If set, Hardy would film this between the currently shooting “This Means War” and his role in the upcoming third Chris Nolan-directed “Batman” feature.
