For any of you unaware, Kristen Stewart is starring as Snow White in rough-and-tumble production of the classic Snow White. From what you can see of the photo, Snow White will be more of a fighting figure than that of a helpless waif who does nothing but cook and clean for the dwarfs, and wait for her Prince Charming to wake her up from a slumber of death.
From the LA Times:
… Since the cast just met each other recently, moderator Dave Karger from Entertainment Weekly magazine conducted a series of ice-breakers, questions like “What are you like on the set? Do you like to improv?”
“I’m very well-behaved,” said Stewart, who is excited to wear her armor and carry a shield as a Snow White with little resemblance to the Disney princess that sings to the birds. “I take myself very seriously.”
“You’ll be fine, Kristen,” responded Theron, who compared her evil queen to a serial killer, one with a fantastic costume designed by Academy Award winner Colleen Atwood. “I’m an Oscar winner, so I take myself very seriously,” she said with a laugh.
Stewart got into the fun when asked whether she’s like her character. “I’d like to be more like her…. But I am the fairest in the land, and I have a seriously good heart,” she said. Added Hemsworth: “And she really likes apples.”
Sanders also introduced a photo of his eight dwarves — a literal who’s who of the British acting scene: Nick Frost, Ray Winstone, Toby Jones, Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Eddie Marsan, Eddie Izzard and Stephen Graham. Why there are eight dwarves? “Because there are a few great lines when one of them gets killed,” Sanders said.
Pretty interesting spin they’re taking on the Snow White story, don’t you think? You reckon this is going to go over well with audiences because of its unique hook, or will it flop like some of Kristen Stewart’s other, post-Twilight indie films?
