In case you’re not aware, there’s two different Snow White movies on the way. One is coming from Universal called SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN starring TWILIGHT’s Kristen Stewart and THOR’s Chris Hemsworth (along with Charlize Theron playing the evil queen), the other comes from Relativity and stars THE BLIND SIDE’s Lily Collins and THE SOCIAL NETWORK’s Armie Hammer, along with Julia Roberts as the evil queen.
