Earlier, Viggo Mortensen, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman and Joel Edgerton were reportedly in talks with the production house for the role in the film Snow White and the Huntsman, but their deal-making never took root. Now, the bosses are considering Chris Hemsworth after his acting in Thor got lots of accolades. It is reported that he has begun the talks with Universal last week.
Snow White and the Huntsman is directed by Rupert Sanders. Evan Daugherty has written the story, which is all about a huntsman, who is ordered to take Snow White into the woods and kill her but instead he chooses to let her go and the two are evidently chained together for part of the movie as they make their escape. The movie is expected to release on December 21, 2012.
