- SNOW WHITE AND BLACK BEARD
Ian McShane comes fresh out Pirates of the Caribbean playing Blackbeard, to step in yet another role as a fantastical character in Snow White and the Huntsmen. He il be playing one of the seven Dwarfs in the film.
Seeing that he isn’t quite a dwarf, we can only assume CG affects will shrink him down to size, in order to play Caesar, the leader of the dwarfs in the story that help Snow White (Kristen Stewart) when she’s marked for death by her evil stepmother (Charlize Theron). And not forgetting the Huntsman, played by Thor’s Chris Hemsworth, who is tasked with slaying Snow, but ends up training her to survive and fight back. (Not your typical Snow White . . . Clearly)
Rupert Sanders is directing the film, which is currently set to hit cinemas a couple of months after Tarsem Singh’s competing take on the tale. Sanders will start shooting in August, so we expect a blizzard of casting stories about the rest of the dwarfs and other characters to hit shortly.
Snow White And The Huntsman is due to be released on June 1, 2012.
