It’s been rumored for the past month or so that Kristen Stewart would be starring in Snow White and the Huntsman, one of three Snow White-themed films in the works, and we finally have confirmation. Producer Palak Patel has tweeted that the Twilight actress is in the final stages of negotiation and will officially sign next week. Though his tweets were quickly deleted, this being the Internet, at least one person managed to grab an image before they were taken down. Patel’s tweets read as follows:
@aurastew KStew is officially playing Snow White and her deal is in final negotiations and will close next week.
@cenup official confirmation coming next week. But we are in final negotiations.
Stewart will be joining previously confirmed stars Charlize Theron, who will play the evil queen, and Viggo Mortensen, who will play the titular huntsman. Rupert Sanders is directing. Snow White and the Huntsman is due out late next year and is scheduled to start shooting in August. [Deadline, MTV]
