McShane Is Dwarf Leader In “Snow White”

Ian McShane (“Deadwood,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”) has signed to play one of the dwarfs in “Snow White and the Huntsman” for Universal Pictures says Heat Vision.

The revisionist take on the fairy tale and features Snow White (Kristen Stewart) as a princess who escapes her evil stepmother (Charlize Theron) with the help of a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) who was to have killed her but now trains the princess to survive and fight back.

McShane will play Caesar, the leader of the dwarfs, while the rest of his cohorts will be cast soon. Rupert Sanders directs with production scheduled to kick off in August.

Relativity’s rival “Untitled Snow White Project” with Julia Roberts and Lily Collins is ramping up production in an effort to hit theatres before ‘Huntsman’.
