Mirror, Mirror on the wall - is Kristen Stewart the fairest of them all? The Twilight actress is slated to take on the iconic role of Snow White in Universal’s new film adaptation “Snow White and the Hunts Man”.
Don’t get this confused with Disney’s version though. This retelling of the Brothers Grimm fairytale will be completely re-imagined to appeal to teenage audiences.
So does the Twilight star have what it takes to play the beloved princess? Gossip blogger Perez Hilton weighs in.
“Clearly, she isn't right for the upbeat, song - happy Disney version of the character, but this movie is going to be dark and gritty…so yeah, we suppose she'll be able to pull this off.”
Even CelebTV seems to agree- Stewart is the obvious choice.
Anchor: “We think she couldn’t be more perfect for the part. The fair complexion, dark hair, and red lips.”
But even though Stewart has landed the role- she may still have some Snow White competition.
With the success of Tim Burton’s 2010 worldwide hit - Alice In Wonderland - there’s a new trend in Hollywood - fairy tales.
And that means Universal’s Snow White isn’t the only adaption set to hit theaters. E! News reports:
“Another flick set to hit theaters next year is The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, with Julia Roberts as its evil queen...This is really heating up the 2012 Snow White movie rivalry. ”
And not to be left out, Disney is also preparing a reboot of Snow White titled “Snow and the Seven”. So why remake the popular fairytales? The Guardian says- why not?
"The entertainment industry's appetite is voracious for content, plots and ideas and these fairy tales work. They've been around for ever"
“Snow White and the Huntsman” is slated for release in December 2012. The Julia Roberts version is set for Summer 2012 and Disney’s Snow and The Seven is expected to hit theaters in 2013.
