For KStew, the big gating question, of course, is whether she has a career after the cult-followed Twilight Saga ends (Part 1 of the final “chapter” in the series Breaking Dawn is due out in November). Though she has had some critical success outside of the cocoon that is Twilight–including the Runaways opposite Dakota Fanning–her upcoming role as Snow White is slated to bring a new and interesting twist to the classic story, and her career.
She apparently beat out Dakota, Selena Gomez, and others for the role in Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman–inspired by the Grimm’s famed fairy tale– which tells the tale of Snow White, an 18-year-old princess whose only friends are animals, and who is getting more beautiful by the day as her step-mother, the Evil Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) gets more and more jealous. Ravenna tries to kill Snow White, but Snow White escapes with the help of a huntsman named Eric (rumored to be played by Thor star Chris Hemsworth) who is trying to get revenge on the Queen. The very gruff Eric teaches Snow White how to fend for herself against the evil creatures of the forest. When she eats a poisonous apple, her childhood sweetheart Prince Charmant (played by Sam Claflin of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) must kiss her in order to unfreeze her lips and give her the potion to heal her. She thinks she’s in love with Eric, but he assures her that Prince Charmant is her one true love. The film is scheduled for a December 21, 2012 release.
