The Hollywood Reporter and GossipCop Updates. Kristen in Negotiations To Play Snow White

The HollywoodReporter Exclusive.

Kristen Stewart is the fairest them of all.

The Twilight star is in negotiations to star in Snow White and the Huntsman, putting her on the road to topline the movie alongside Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron for Universal’s take on the fairy tale.

The deal is not done and could still fall apart, but both sides want it to happen.

Stewart is a name that Universal kept coming back to since acquiring the project. Still, it went through a series of screen tests with actresses such as Riley Keough, Felicity Jones and Alicia Vikander. As The Hollywood Reporter previously reported, Stewart was still being courted as late as last week, and Universal finally made an offer over the weekend.

Commercial helmer Rupert Sanders is making his directorial debut on the pic, which amps up the action quotient from the fairy tale and plays up the relationship between White and the Huntsman. In the new scenario, when she is banished and on the run by the evil queen (Theron), the Huntsman (Mortensen) takes her under his wing to protect her, and she becomes his protege, learning how to fight and defend herself.

Stewart is repped by Gersh.

EmpireOnLine And now, confirming earlier chatter, Kristen Stewart has entered formal negotiations to play the heroine in Snow White and the Huntsman.

Clearly looking to snag some of that Twilight fan base, Universal has made an offer to the actress, whose management team are now negotiating. According to the Heat Vision blog, nothing is set in stone, though both sides seem to be agreed that it should happen if the right terms are found.

GossipCop- February 3, 2011 Kristen Stewart Offered 'Snow White'

On Tuesday, Gossip Cop confirmed that Kristen Stewart was on Universal’s list for the title role in Snow White and the Huntsman.

At the time, Stewart was described to us as a “person of interest.” Today, it appears that status has been elevated.

Sources close to the production tell Gossip Cop the Snow White role belongs to Stewart if the two sides can come to an agreement. Again, nothing is finalized yet, but the Twilight star has been offered the role.

This needs to happen...Kristen to be working with Charlize and Viggo would be uhm-mazing!
